Most
Babaylans before
those of my
language arrived
on
the islands
were miracle women,
you
know this
but the centre
was
the healing
of the body
&
the healing
of the heart.
Poetess,
Priest, angel,
your inked hands
touched
my tongue
still hurting for
adobo
smelling of
the ‘mole’ of
my
grandparents, even
those
I never
made my own.
