Poem: Let’s Take a Trip
I’lll hold your hand.
We’re on a journey, side by side. You be the tourist,
I’ll be your guide.
We won’t stop til we get where we’re meant to be goin’. So long as the love and the music is flowin’. Free.
See! Epiphanies in the great outdoors. Kaleidoscopic
Igurots and Eskimos. Papaya frogs
with eleven toes.
Let’s take a trip to our secret place. You pack a lunch
and I’ll say grace.
We’ll dine on dreams and private jokes. On harebrained schemes
and organic smokes.
Let’s take a trip in our birthday suits. Energized by
No destination, no Guam or Rome. Our grand adventure
leads to home.
We won’t stop til we get where we’re meant to be goin’. So long as the love and the music is flowin’.
Our lust to wander is a daffodil growin’. A sun-kissed garden with seeds to be sowin’. A field of grass that never needs mowin’.
Wag kang mag-alaala di kita lolokohin.
And I won’t mind if your undies are showin’. Or fret about the money that we be blowin’.
’cause all I want to do
Is take a trip with you!
