Gridlocked Dusk To Dawn
Sketch of Manila traffic in the early 60s. Commuters and blinding
neon lights of all colors and hordes of vehicles is the scene from
dusk to dawn and dawn to dusk sans neons to a lesser degree.
The same can be said today and is true to a much bigger area
now called Metro Manila with a vibrant population close to 12
Got home at dawn that day enough time to shower and start
my day again.

Thank you Brod. Yes I read your "poem-ugly-Manila". I visited exactly the same street you did, a cacophony of imaginable and unimaginable things.
The place has become a beast that generated a "beauty" all its own-loved by the locals and a puzzle to tourists and expatriate. The mangos were sweet and plumb and juicy, though. And true yellow with streaks of reddish rose. One beautiful sight. Thanks for loving.
