Birds

 
 
“Caricature is the new term for translation.”
Sabi ng Amerikanong si Harman.
 
Saktong nagbakasakali ang manliligaw ni Susan:
“Maaari ba kitang mahalin nang tahimik?”
 
“Paano?” Tugon ng babae.
“Gaya ng kung anuman wika iyong
ibon lang ang nakakaintindi.”
 
Tumahimik na lang ang Susan.
“Sa maniwala ka man o hindi
may mga taong isinilang nang araw ng Linggo.”
Alam kaya niya ito.
 
Naalala niya si Benjamin.
 
“The language of birds is understood by those born on Sunday.”
