Feature by: Tiffany Limsico
From John Torres
I look for you with all my might, and I am not even sure about names, about places, about dates, 00/00/0000. We meet this one time, only in a dream, to see that there are no words for broken things. He said, there are no words for broken things. Kaya huwag tayong magpapagamit. Do not look for us in history, and books written by the victors. They are exact. We are uneventful, and in between. Do not look for our story in myths, and apparitions, filling the gap. They are bridges. We stretch, and we fall. Do not look for us in this field. We shall not work for them. Do not look for us again in this dream. They shall make me a soldier for their war. And change how you see me. At the end of this, we will reject a revolution and arrive at love. He said, at the end of this, we will reject a revolution and arrive at love. Listen to their faces. Donít take their words. Our romance lies at the timbre of their voice.
(Dre, because you never got to hear me record this, inspired by two poets I told you about. I kept the film from you, sorry about that. I thought we had all the time in the world. Reen sees the small changes that I make everyday. John)
John Torres entrusted Alexis with his films from day one. He will play guitar now once he agrees to freestyle.
