Cosmic Rei

written by: Stuart M. Klimek


Beneath the eclipse of an obsidian sun
On lunar landscapes where we had our fun
Swimming the shadows and shooting the stars
Vacationing on Venus with mischief on Mars
Dancing in darkness and singing some ditties
Expanding our exploits in alien cities
I’ll never forget those words you said
That turned my heart upon its head
Pasko paksiw pasko paksiw
Pasko paksiw pasko paksiw



‘Pasko paksiw’ is a phrase when repeated several times is one of many tongue-twisters of the Philippines. Its meaning is ‘a cooked, seasoned fish for a Christmas meal’.
