IMPOSTOR

.

until you recognize

you’re an impostor

.

you’ve acted upon the things

others dare not

because they were afraid

.

you’re

a teacher without lecture notes

using dressings to cover up broken bones

.

your actions 

attracts 

the looks

annoyance

.

you

failed to note what’s right there in front of you

tree bark in your backyard

covering up what’s been soundly consumed by destiny

the destiny of a tree is to cover up

the lies

and you’re aware of the glue

under the paper till the moment the lightning strike 

splits your body in half

the poem is like the roots

left behind…

cho đến khi bạn biết

mình là một kẻ mạo danh

.

mình

đã làm những gì người khác không dám làm

vì sợ kiếp nạn

mình 

đã làm…

Unvaccinated People Ordered to Stay Home or Face Jail in City of 14 Million

In a sobering dose of reality cutting a relatively festive holiday season, the Philippines’ sprawling capital Metro Manila has announced yet another lockdown in an attempt to stave off a frightening spike in COVID-19 infections. This time, though, stay-at-home orders apply only to unvaccinated residents and travelers, as the rest of the metropolis carries on with only stricter protocols when in public.

KFC and Beyond Meat are launching vegan chicken nuggets nationwide next week – Vox

Now, plant-based chicken is getting its turn in the spotlight. Starting January 10, Beyond Fried Chicken will be available at KFC’s nearly 4,000 US locations, the first — and biggest —nationwide rollout of plant-based poultry at a major chicken chain. It will be served as part of a combo meal, or in six- or 12-piece orders. (KFC says the six-piece order will start at $6.99 but may vary by location. For comparison, an eight-piece order of Chick-fil-A chicken nuggets cost $8.39 at a location near me in Maryland.)

¿Y tu familia?

Existe una tendencia globalde desbaratar a la familia. Se trata de un juego perverso, una ecuación peligrosa, un plan que se ha aplicado gradualmente, desde hace años, con cierta intencionalidad. La gente está tan distraída y parece fascinada con el encanto cibernético, con las apariencias y las lejanías que alguien, y otros más, hacen creer y sentir que se trata de realidades, que no se da cuenta de que la familia es una fórmula que se desmorona. Al enfrentar a los opuestos -empleados-patrones, alumnos-profesores, hombres-mujeres, menores-adultos-, también se incluyó, en tan nefasto paquete, a los hijos y al padre y a la madre, a los nietos y a los abuelos, a los sobrinos y a los tíos. El proyecto de destruir a la familia, implica deshilvanar tejidos, abrir brechas, dejar boquetes irreparables, separar, dividir. Al ejercicio del poder…

Un poema dulce

Usted es un poema dulce, una letra que provoca mis más hondos suspiros, una palabra y otra más que pronuncio inspirado cuando la siento con un tanto de mí. Usted es mi historia, la novela de mi existencia, el texto que la incluye en mi biografía. Usted es el perfume que cada mañana, al despertar, penetra por mi ventana; el color que me invita a zambullirme en los matices del amor y de la vida; la textura delicada por la que deslizo mis pinceles y la reproduzco como los lagos lo hacen cuando asoma la profundidad del cielo en sus amaneceres y en sus anocheceres. Usted es el rumor y el silencio de mis conciertos, las pautas y los susurros de mi vida, la sinfonía que la transforman en nota con la idea de que yo, al reproducir los…
