Last August 8, I started a new blog which I named, "The Gods Envy Us." (Yup, after the line from the Troy movie.)
Last August 12, I bought a book of poetry (rather casually and hurriedly, from a book sale) entitled, The Gods We Worship Live Next Door, by Bino A. Realuyo.
(Cover design by Gerry Baclagon, book design by Jo B. Pantorillo. Anvil Publishing edition, 2008.)
Earlier this afternoon, I added the following phrase to my secret prose poem:
perhaps among the 150 buried in Payatas...Just now, this late evening, I read the following from her* poem:
A few miles away, the residents of a dumpsite are dead, their bodies buried in an avalanche of trash.*Last night, I visited, just for the second time, a bookstore which -- according to the "attendant" there yesternight -- the poetess co-owns. (To my sweet surprise!)
And, barely an hour ago, I watched Rated K and found the place where Ryan Rems Sarita was interviewed as quite familiar. ;-)
