I miss Naga City evenings and how I've been coaxed,
to embrace her even if I was
to reek of alcohol before she retired.
Evenings always come and go, resembling one another
but never once tried to duplicate each other.
That Naga City dawn was a woman too.
My other lover, she was
the perfect concubine for a waning love for self,
under a Quince Martirez sky.
