DISASTER TANAGA II


RESILIENCY 
KT Guiang

Are we able to go back
To yesterday's life track
Or will transform and resist
Get ourselves out of this trap?




LANGUAGE OF DISASTER
DD Reyes

A man took food from a store
The city, post-disaster
He needs to eat to survive
Should he be called a looter?




MATA
GZ Siapo

Dumaan na ang mata
Tambad sa mga mata
Dilat na mga mata
At inyong pangmamata.




SYSTEM-MAGNIFIED DISASTER
MA Carpon

Biktima ng sistema
Sa buhay ay hikahos
Nalantad pa sa unos
Lalo nang nabusabos.




DISASTER POLITICS
MSH Betito

While victims mourn and suffer
Others felt the need to work
Not to help and not to care
But to project as the "good".




STATE ABANDONMENT
MS Zubiri

There is calm after the storm
Ten thousand bereft of life,
Countless injured, most missing
Including the government.




SYSTEM-INDUCED DISASTERS
MS Zubiri

Most disasters are unseen
Or perhaps seen but ignored
On sidewalks, under bridges
The winds of hunger are strong.




TRAGEDY PORNOGRAPHY
EJA Dela Cruz

Nilente na ang lahat
Hanggang sa mga ugat
Trahedyang aming sugat
Tiningnan lang sa balat.
