7:30 am checking yourself in the mirror at nadyan na siya

“Good morning, Sir!” bati ni Mau ang kanyang sekretarya
dadaan na siya sa opis mo’t “good morning” O kinilig ka ba

ang sagot mo’y isang ngiti’t “heaven!” at solve na solve ka na


ang sabi ni Mau “pogi talaga ni boss kaya lang suplado siya”

last meeting ay sinigaw sigawan niya iyong assistant niya

nakaka-usyami’t ang dami pa namang humahanga sa kanya

pati si baklitang designer ay kinikilig kapag kaharap na siya


Mau is talking about her boss Bernard and he has good looks

he dresses impressively and he is deep and annoying sometimes

but YOU like his clothes, his perfume and his sleepy eyes

he is sweet and full of surprises…ngunit teka bakit mo alam?


because I am Claire, Bernard and I are secret lovers

nobody knows about it not even Mau and it is our secret

malaki ang kanyang responsibility sa trabaho’t no regrets 

ang aming relasyon ay simple and it is only for ourselves


on Thursdays you dine out and go to a secluded bar

on Fridays you go to a beach and smoke in a shisha bar

gusto niya kayong dalawa lang at very intimate and private

basta weekdays it’s all about work and it is give and take


you get used to the same set-up at huwag lang mag-jejeling please

mahirap din ang kumpanya ninyo’y magkashare ng floor office

tanaw nya lahat ng bisita mo’t nagkamali minsan ang florist

basta nagmissed call siya sa iyo that means he is pissed!


dumating ang pagsubok at you’re both lying down on the beach

biglang “hi Sir Bernard, how are you?” three ladies at mukhang b*tch

mabuti na lang at you’re wearing sunglasses at no more speech

“don’t worry” sabi ni Bernard at whatever sira na ang inyong picnic


it’s Monday at meron conference si Bernard with his staff

busy si Mau at nagpapatulong magprepare ng drinks no bluff

ok lang wala naman ang iyong boss and you can’t help but laugh

diyan ka lang sa pantry at wait mo si Mau and just one little puff


“can we have more drinks, errr Miss?” Oh no! silang three ladies

are they schocked? nagkatinginan din sila walang mintis

OMG, they are here! kailangan kang magkunwari at bilis

they are looking to your tattoo on your leg at Oh no please!


these ladies spell trouble and they remembered your tattoo after all

kasi naman today you are wearing a skirt and not bothered at all

how can you feel stupid but that is not your mistake well, not at all

ihanda mo lang ang iyong sarili’t wala silang paki! f*ck ’em all


on the next day you came to work and feeling sad and heavy

ayaw mo sanang pumasok but you have to talk to Bernard at surely

Claire I thought we are friends but why didn’t you tell me

syota mo pala si boss-“so Bernard is keeping a little butterfly here Mau-i?”


dumating na nga si Bernard at sumunod ka sa kanyang opis

he said the whole company knows about your relationship

he is angry at ayaw na ayaw niyang may nakikialam at he hates gossip

“Claire, it’s not your fault but…” umalis ka na lang para kang nainip


you felt cold and out ngunit siya si Bernard at ishare mo sa madlang pips

minahal mo siya ng ganyan about his life and his flaws but you never learn the tricks

he admits he hates his divorced parents at gusto niya ng wife for keeps

hindi nakapagtataka sa kanyang uri ng career at hindi rin siya a man for keeps


he is now sending you text messages saying “hi” and “goodnight”

he stops going to his office at obviously umiiwas siya sa iyo hmmm, that’s not right

Mau told you he looks disturbed unhappy haggard looking and he lost weight

“Claire, get him back!” sayang naman at nakatingin ka lang at looking uptight


“sayang alin kaya ang sayang?” nagkamali ka rin at inakala mong magbabago siya

inakala mong sapat ang inyong suyuan at mamahalin at pagbibigyan ka niya

ngunit siya si Bernard at ang kanyang trabaho’t sarili lang ang mahal niya

nasaktan ka man ng labis but that’s your lesson at sana’y makarma rin siya

 

Bernard and Claire didn’t get back to each other at nagpadestino siya sa ibang bansa

he accepted his promotion but based in Africa at Oh! dapat lang sa piling ng mga cheetah

Mau told Claire he sends emails and surprisingly with a little butterfly at hibang ba siya?

“kapareho ng tattoo mo Claire isa kang magandang paru-paro sa kanyang ala-ala”

For M.B.
