I Will Say: Gamalinda

Posted on Updated on


Some day I’ll send everyone a card
with nothing in it, only
the calligraphy
of a river, and on the back
with invisible ink I will say:
Forgive my happiness,
I have betrayed you all.


As a rediscovered pleasure, Eric Gamalinda‘s poems never fail to transport one’s thoughts from the mundane to a more transcendent realm. Invisible ink, calligraphy, and the full intent to go on with one’s happiness. He makes it sound so easy, so graceful.

I wish for such power, such will.
