COFFEE TALK

i could have just written
about a hot coffee and that teaspoon of
brown sugar

and tell you that this is what is poetry
all about

one morning when it rains
so hard that we have no chance
to talk, and really talk
about it

but despite the rain
you leave just the same.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  5598.     

cogitation

if this chair does not exist
will i, this, chair, me, who asks,
if this chair, exists at all,
can i, exist, too? will i be dependent
on the thought of a chair
a thought of me that i think i
can touch, that i think thoughts
touching this thought of a chair
does the chair think about me,
i ask, looking for that therefore
beside the chair that i thought
is a chair, that i thought is I,
am, therefore, a chair, thinking
chair, on four feet?

  5599.     

coincidences

coincidences are the initiating
moments of seduction
and somehow nature smiles at it
the tryst may follow next
again as a matter of coincidence
this happens when people try to
say that love
in unexpected niches
also bloom.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  5600.     

cold

distance becomes sweet
roller coaster love
repeating the constancy
of beginnings
the same windows
and doors that open
and close
familiar light
getting in every morning
cliches of promises
boring days and hours unchallenged
cold, everything i touch is cold,
i retreat to this bitter victories
sorrow shall i love more
numbing sweetness
this nameless state
what is no longer a question
the roof and the ceiling
crushing us both

let us have a little space between us
let us plant the words.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
