  4397.     

back in maribujoc one evening last summer

i look at the picture again
of old men and women
reminiscing their past
one evening dinner their
bald heads shiny on the
light the women with furrows
on their foreheads nicely
concealed by imported
cream, i listen a lot about
this conference of what
to do with poverty and
make the town alive again...

what i felt was this: ghostly
and ghastly, cold air by the
window, hushing, hungry
for attention.

  4398.     

back off

back off from me
do not imprison me by your generosity
do not enslave me with your love

set me free
tell me that this is all an illusion
show me the way
to the fantasy of your pretenses
make me an angry man
tell me tell me
that you do not love me

so i may pack and leave
and take back my life again and live
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  4399.     

back to you

i am here
at par with you
my peer
we shall appear
on same designer clothes
now
i can afford it
i am glad finally
that i have made it
on the
21st century

touch my elbow
we go elbow to elbow now
for you have been my giant
and i was your dwarf
because you have looked at me
with disdain
but now, i am happy to have made
it on your century

my God if you only knew it
got demoted really
from my own time
on the 30th
light years ago

touching myself
trying to be human again.

Back To An Old Place

it is summer
scorching summer
season creeping,
grasses are wilting
trees are shedding of
their last leaves,
what i see are bones
of trees,
skeletons of
branches,
the dry wind keeps
blowing the leaves
away,
what i have is this
bald surrounding
emptied of their
essence
beyond me are
brown mountains
vultures are
in the skies
eying for
death as prey
i sit upon a rock
the only rock
left here
i have no cover on
my head
i am half naked
i have no one to talk
to,
they have left this
arid place
a long time ago
i am back
i am telling the
sand soil,
i have something
to write and
tell the world
about it

it is summer
in this vast desert
a long time ago
this was ours
and the trees are green
grasses verdant
butterflies flutter
and innocently
land on our
hands.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
