  4397.     

A Process...

when the mystery is finally gone
and familiarity rests on the carpeted floors
the ticks begin to
multiply and breed what makes
us apart
this contempt for so much
knowing
the taking for granted of
what used to be
love's luxuries
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  4398.     

A Program Component

part of the program component
is the fear that they install
on incoming viruses

what do you do? take the fear
and savor the virus and sit on the
easy chair, wiggle, wobble, like
another unknown planet

stare at the monitor as though
it is a bird that cannot take flight
with your mind

it will stare back
but you are no longer moved with pity

fear is an important part of this program
fly with it
have a tour on its contours
and when you come back
tell me the story of fear in wonderland
show me that Cheshire grin
be the mad hatter
with the etiquette of the
Red Queen

this is senseless
yet why did you finish it?
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  4399.     

A Promise

dear lady
i will climb ten mountains
i will swim twenty rivers
i will sail thirty seas
i will walk forty plains
i will vanish in space
just tell me if all these deeds
can make you happy.

from me
the man you don't want me to be.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  4400.     

A Promise For Lilacs

so where are the lilacs?

you promised me lilacs
i am far away

i will be satisfied with the pictures of
lilacs
in bloom

less the scent, less the reality of lilacs

i grab then the illusion of lilacs
a field of lilacs

a mountain of lilacs, a path of lilacs,

or just a single lilac,

or just another promise of lilacs

or look-alike of lilac

from you
 
RIC S. BASTASA
