excerpts from the litapp 2009 : folds by bernadette canay


I traced my fingers over
the folds of your feet
while I rubbed them with oiled hands,
as you asked,
to “make them soft as
a baby’s skin.”
The soles were hard like dog’s pads and
I imagined you walking over
hot coals
like the ones on tv shows–
but they had their secrets, and though
you never learned their tricks
your feet weren’t black.

I felt your muscles loosen
but I cannot make them soft again.

Malaking bagay ito para sa kanya, kaya kahit mali ginagamit niya pa rin ito sa pagpapangalan ng mga nabiling libro. Nais niyang makaharap ang nag-type ng pangalan niya sa Birth Certificate balang araw.
