My idling last night inside a 7-11 store gave me one big surprise when I found my poems printed on the last pages of a Philippines Graphic Magazine. It turned out that I am already a week late as it was an August 9 issue (Vol. 21 No. 10). The copy I asked was promptly sent out as a souvenir (read: show-off).
It never fails to give me that uplifting feeling whenever I see a work get printed. That is already a prize for me. Cheers!
