[Tula] (AN)ANIB -ni R.B. Abiva

“Pika a maiwekwek iti bakrang/ dayta dilam a naabasan ken napatirad/ kadagiti proberbio nga inka insalsalikad.”- Roy Vadil Aragon, Ukom (2019)

Bago lumagom ang malamig na gabi
at lisanin ng alinsangang mula sa hininga
ng Sol ang ibabaw ng mga pinitak-banos,
isinuot kita nang sa gayo’y makita ko sila
kahit pa sa lalim ng dilim, at kahit pa
nababalutihan sila ng balat ng palaka,
wala silang panama, walang-wala!
Maging ang kanilang mga bala!
Sapagkat suot-suot ko ang kampilan sa paggawa
hindi lamang sa aking laman kundi maging sa
kaibuturan ng aking nagbabagang kaluluwa.

An-anib- iluko ng agimat.
Sol- latin ng araw.
