microcosm (for y***)

"if i could, then i would, i'll go wherever you will go."--the calling

"small world," you grin
at this chance encounter
we follow the customary updates
until you sing a different song.
"a colleague called up.
business is brisk in dubai--
i'll see." the crammed
jeepneys in cubao become
airplanes zooming away
in an endless diaspora.
now, i understand
why in big bang,
the universe continues
to expand:
this moment, you orbit
next to me, so smothering
i could taste your perfume.
in an eye's twinkling, you go
half the world away,
where gold glitters like the sun,
the howl of wind
muffles the sighs of the shifting desert.
i'll stick around, sure thing,
but a part of me accompanies you
wherever is your calling.
