“In moments of pique, or youthful pride, or despair, [Emmanuel Lacaba] had thrown or given away many of his early poems. In 1973 he submitted to the Don Carlos Palanca Memorial Awards for Literature what he could put together under the title Salvaged Poems—this was before the word “salvaged” acquired the peculiar Filipino meaning it now has, of being executed summarily or extrajudicially.”—Jose Lacaba, in the second edition’s editor’s note
