Kabu-kabute

by: Sylvia Plath

salin ni: Lawrence Anthony Bernabe

Magdamagan, napaka-
Puti, hindi pansinin.
Napaka-mapangdili.

Tintinan, ilong nami’y
Kumakapit sa lupa.
Umaangkin sa hangin.

Walang sasaksi sa’min,
Pipigil o tataksil;
Bubutil, nagsi-usog.

Kuom-palad pilit ay
Bumatak ng karayom,
Ng madahong higaan,

Pati na ng aspalto.
Martilyo, maso namin,
‘Alang tenga ni mata,

Puspusang walang tinig,
Mga biyak bubuksan,
Butas, suongin. Kami’y

Nagt?t?sa ng tubig,
Ng mumo ng anino.
Mahinahon, hiling ay

Kakarampot o wala.
Napakarami namin!
Napakarami namin!

Kami’y tokador, kami’y
Lamesa, kami’y dukmo
Kami ay makakain.

Mang-udyok, mang-tulak,
Maski na ano kami,
Kami ay dumarami.

‘Pag umaga na, aming
Mamanahin ang mundo.
Paa nami’y sa bungad.
