Please give a warm welcome to a new cleave poet Ernesto Pangilinan Santiago.

This Is My Shadow


               Poetry is my escape - and my cure

                           I float - in word
            like free bird soaring - swiftly
 into the blue sky; freedom is not - found
             in what you can offer - me
              but in what I can do - for my self, without you

                         vacuuming - my whole

                     Oh, my shadow - can only be
by those who are willing to see - me
