And if I look in my heart,
it is always you that I see.
-Graffigny, Lettres d’une Peruvienne


The coffee
I love
reminds me
of my
round eyes –

what sweet
lies hidden
in its syrupy

I look in
my cup
and Nocturnes
I hear
her gaze
to play
in my heart.
And then
I take
a sip,

Yes, coffee is good for your health

College certainly ruined my life for good. That’s when I started drinking lots of coffee. Cramming for exams, you know. It was a natural progression from there to my years as a newspaper reporter and a law student. It’s even worse working in a law office. There’ll always be deadlines to beat, which means many sleepless nights and more coffee, not to mention that cafes are a rage these days. Ah, all that talk about the bad things imbibing too much coffee does to you. And now, here comes this piece from the New York Times saying more or less that yes, coffee is in fact, good for your health. If that’s any consolation, consider too that spending too much time in your favorite cafe (or coffee shop, as it is called in Manila), can also be bad for your pockets!
