The Candle Man

The Candle Man
Dr Abe V Rotor
Candle Vendor,  San Vicente, Ilocos Sur

He looks into your eyes, queer, penetrating,
candles, sir, for the Apo;
and you look into his eyes, gentle, appealing,
and pay, from others' view;
something mysterious this candle man seems,
ask, "'tang how old are you?"   
Repeating the question like talking to a deaf,
answers low, "one century ago."
