  4397.     

A Ripe Mango

smell its sweetness
like the scent of a
child's memory
soothing to sadness

its color is yellow
on hues on pale orange
smooth skin
like porcelain

its pulp is juicy
and sugarlike
in taste, and
the covering
of the seed is
leatherlike

at the core
it is better

like me, really.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  4398.     

A Ritual

one puts too much
oil on the hair
and you know how it
goes

your face glows
like fire
your hair becomes
pitch black

and you face the people
of this corner
and that pathway
as though you are you

inside the fire
and the sickness burns
outside the smile
becomes as wide
as full moon

who knows you?
nobody

what then? you are happy.
i know, . i am too.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  4399.     

A Ritual Of The Day To The Night

afraid of being converted into a pig
i do not sleep when i am done
and full

i sit and watch the stars flicker
the moon floats on the river and stays full at rest on the side of the mountain
i listen to the fox
i gaze at the bird resting upon a twig on a tree beside the house of my parents

and when i am hungry and thirsty again
upon an empty mind i go to bed and ponder
between this dreamland and this harsh reality
the words come into play
and begin to reconcile

and then i fall into a deep sleep
erasing all that the day has written so
ineptly
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  4400.     

A River Of Loneliness

loneliness is like a river
winding through many mountains
and hills and plains
and ricelands
trying to end its journey
to the mouth of the sea
whose vast bounty takes the river in
and diffuses all its loneliness
into anonymity
 
RIC S. BASTASA
