Unya kadali?

ug kay nganung babaye ang nagkupot

sa itum nga manibela?

 

“Kay basta lokal, pwede,”

tubag ni manghud.

Quick note:

ug ‘Uncle.’

 

Balik ta kay Auntie:

Ug nganu nga sa

Ug dungan sila

ni manghud ug auntie, 

nodding that 

knowing nod of

agreement.

 

Ming-abut na mi

dolyar,

ug promise kay auntie —

those “Philippine mangoes.”
