Noun. From Tagalog meaning — unfolded; spreading out on a surface; to come out;
and the nearest translation I find is sharp,
translates to you stretching
out of yourself, your wrists bending
at the sides of a box struggling to contain this revelation.
It dictates that you’re not allowed to simply pass through
but fall from somewhere high, once comfortable,
a reminder that you are porcelain, unpolished quartz,
your sense of man cracked for wanting man
as if it wants to say
you deserve all that is twisting at your heart,
all that is crushing into your torso.
