Crumpled piece of paper
Your edges are jagged but not sharp
enough to puncture nor slice
open anyone's skin.
You are too light to cause a bruise;
a projectile thrown just to annoy
and catch attention.
You soar to reach out to someone,
but she wouldn't break your fall
nor budge from your nudge.
You are an insignificant
*I wonder if they use the same set now (not necessarily in order): 1) the crumpled piece of paper; 2) geometric shapes from which you'll make a composition; 3) nine or 12 separate boxes on a sheet of paper, into each you'll draw "realistic" images that "are not what they seem to be at first glance" (familiar with the tricky top view of the man wearing a Mexican hat, taking a leak?); 4) a sketch of "David," Michelangelo's iconic sculpture (if I remember right); and 5) a visual interpretation of a weird description. For the last one, I remember mine as "Naglalakad ng pabaliktad ang kapre patungo sa altar." ("The kapre is walking upside down towards the altar." The kapre is a Philippine mythical creature -- though my late maternal grandmother swore that she actually saw one -- who is too kind that he is barred from entering Malacañang Palace and Hacienda Luisita.)
