A hundred Februaries and more
after Grayson fired those fatal shots,
the blood shed by Anastacio Felix
on the pavement at Sosiego and Silencio
refuses to dry.
Liwanag is bound still to the balete,
with gold chains,
as the bald eagle hovers on over the land
with our tattered flag
hanging from its beak.
