  7197.     

Ferdie

blood was the rain
that made the ground of your dreams
fertile,
death was the plow that furrowed
a vision
of us here who simply watched
as you pass us by
there was something that bloomed
like the flower
under the shadow of the sun
the silence says you left
nothing
everything about you has become
unrecognizable,
there were traces but only for a while
the sea washed what footstep was
there
you left seeds, still alive, the birds of prey
black as their hearts are
took them all away

one seed grows
tall and mighty
now it is asking me what you were
what has become of you
a name that they all barely remember

Ferris Wheel Talks

to make him interesting
tell him that you are with your other
famous friends in the bar
drinking the best beer in town
and you are enjoying the talks of the
town

to include him, (and he would be too
curious what about him that you are all
talking about)
and you make stories, here and there
and everywhere
precisely to make him alive again

when in fact, you and your famous
friends
had been talking about religion,
philosophy, politics, and
girls, and
about this incessant Ferris wheels
of war and peace.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  7199.     

Fiat Voluntas Dei

at the end
we shall not be responsible
for logically
what happened was that
it was God's will
it was Him all along asserting Himself
slowly
in a hurry or whatever
despite the fact
that they always make us feel
that we are responsible
with our own human
will,

at the end
He triumphs
even without us
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  7200.     

Fiction

Tel me what is your recently invented pretense
Your latest lie?

Shape, form, color, texture,
Of your many selves like your unequal fingers
More than the number
Of your allowable toes,

Feign and feign
That is feigning
Feign in feigning
Fingers like other fingers,

The shape
Of your fingers

You make things up
You invent new stories
And without any excuses
At all, like a very clever man loving many women
At the same time,

Figment, fabric, fabricate fabrics
To entertain, you are justifying, just to entertain, not to
Deceive
To lure them to glorify themselves
To believe about some goodness and beauty and the
Truth so well expressed in fiction,

In the field of imagination things work themselves into human beings
The cows talk in affable fables, the characters talk about avarice, love, hate,
And murders done in fiction,
We learn a lot,

And in that vast field of fiction
You are the cicada singing
Alone
To a cold and dark night
Wishing to be
A black bird, the one that flies and sings
And goes to places where
You have never been.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
