The Filipino Bread poem

The Filipinos Bread

Breakfast
with 3-in-1 coffee

& hot pandesal,
Gardenia or a loaf from

the market called Tasty—
they are all bread.

Local bakeries
make loaves

of girls,
on glass display

she is Bread
unless she is

a wrapped bread
with lacy icing

all over her
& coy floral accents

sit on her landscape
of far beauty—

she is Cake.
