A Request

lady since you cannot
explain to me
orgasm in words
or even in poetry
i have one request
will you please demonstrate
it to me?

i am a slow
learner, so please
repeat it over and over
again.

A Request That You Simply Mind Your Own Business...

there is this tail end
of the wind that tells you
that the journey
was never smooth and easy

there are eddies of the mind
that must finally tell you that

oh well,
not every thing has been alright
that there are no clearer ponds except those that you have not really gone to

oh yes, far pastures are always greener than we think
or that, you never really understand what one had gone through
all those fast flying years

these goddamn quick years that leave us with nothing
but suppressed memories
which still carry the needles in their hands and prick us on those
empty nights

at the height of this upheaval
you still have no right to grasp
what details are there

go somewhere else
and read between the armpits of these lines

there is this Notice on the Wall which tells you
with accuracy (and even warn you about respect)

(i.e. to simply mind your own business, ok?)

A Resolution

early in the morning
as we pray in church
searching for
light
we ponder deep
like a well
without rope
on a rusty pail
and then we open our eyes
not seeing any light
we find the darkness instead
and then we step out
and walk on our
separate ways.

A Response To Love Unrequited

i've seen love offered
which i did not love for once
and for fear that
i may mislead love to a place
not intended for it
i simply ignore it

i had love and spent it all
until i do not have any

i am not that happy if you
ask for
that higher standard of
having to live away from misery

but i know love and i know how to throw it away
so that i may cause no pain at
all

or that it may not cause any pain
at me

(for who likes pain?
i too, want to avoid
that unnecessary pain
that i do not wish
to bear with out any
meaning)

what i wish to tell you
is this: i have learned to live
alone
at least in my mind
that on nights that i am just
myself in bed and with
no other
in peace shall i
soundly sleep

and you who say
that you do not love me anymore

i shall reply:
i really don't care.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
