Lipat Bahay

Note: This is the solo piece I performed for TWO: Words Anonymous' Second Anniversary Show.  Tuwing gabi, ginigising ako ng pagkaluskos ng mga laylayan ng aking kurtina sa mga kartong minarkahan ng mga sulat kamay mo. Takot pa rin akong buksan sila, kahit na alam ko naman kung ano ang kanilang nilalaman. Ilang linggo na … Continue reading Lipat Bahay
