By Harold Legaspi | 1 February 2021Kristo’s outstretched handscalled wagersfrom memory.Loot for luck.Slasher’s clamped to draw blood.Right-feet sharp,steely & divine.Double-edged.Gallus gallus, pretty asMiss Universestrut with raised feathers:crimson & black.The clamour dies.A perfect bloodlineof currencies flying over heads.A battle royale in the circular pit.Soltada! Presto! Logro! Pago! Sentensyador’s verdict as cruel.A bird’s eye as traitors.Two cocks fighting: strivingfor Christ and the palm of glory.
