Metro Manila Mammal
Language & Dictionary
This is the first full-length collection of poems from a writer who is a life-long denizen within the conglomeration of 16 cities and one municipality called Metro Manila, also officially known as the National Capital Region of the Philippines. His current weekly routine involves visiting four other cities from his home in Quezon City, which makes him travel approximately two-thirds of the whole of Metro Manila two to three times a week. He believes that his experiences culled from growing up, living and working within this metropolitan area strongly inform his poetry – regardless of theme or subject matter.
