The Poor Fish from Estancia

swimming in the blood of the town.
caught in Fine-mesh-net.
sold in banyeras at the feeder port.
soaked in salt-water brine.
dried under the sun.
prisoned in wood boxes.
traveled to long places.
Bought by an urban poor.
fried in boiling reused oil.
eaten by poisonous mouth.
digested in ulcer-striken stomach.
buried in Pasig river.
rest is History.
