You did not show up on the day
we were to meet again.
I waited in the rain
near an old, abandoned building
at the corner of Roxas Boulevard and T.M. Kalaw
hoping the rather charming setting would remind you
of Wong Kar Wai’s In the Mood for Love.

In the end, you realized you weren’t in the mood

And I, not really in love.

i was googling for amorsolo's fruitpicker painting, hoping to get a bit of info about it (which i can probably use for an ad im currently writing), when i bumped into your blog and your wong kar wai musing. pardon my undue copying but i fell in love with it -- so bad, that i wrote it in my little big notebook. im a writer and im a sucker for wow lines. now back to work. =)
