  7197.     

I keep on thinking

As we talk
i keep on thinking
who is this man who is talking to me
is he my comrade in poetry?
he is funny and he is hard
he writes too but revises as he says
as often as he wants to
wanting perfection perhaps?
is perfection a good motive to be a man?
or is it nicer to be a man of all the imperfections?
do you wish to insult God with your wish for
perfection?
i keep on thinking and then i keep on writing
aimlessly
firing all my guts to nowhere
and then i stop
i like it this way
aimlessly devoted to
me.

  7198.     

i know

i know what you want to hear from me
after tonight
after i untangle my arms around you
after i take away my lips from yours
after i hide my tongue
i know what you want me to utter
after tonight
when the stars fade away
when the darkness hovers again like a giant
black bird
when there is nothing left between us
i know what i can still afford to say:

i love you.

  7199.     

i know for sure

i know for sure
that when
you see
the sun directly
you close
your eyes
and see
everything
red inside
you

you do not
want to
be hurt
again

i know for sure
that when
you close
your eyes
you see
what you
want to see


will it be
me?

or will it
be him?

or will
it just
be yourself?

in pain
alone

  7200.     

i know how the grass works

they die and they grow
and they repeat this cycle all over again
even if we are finally gone and buried underneath them.

i know how they are tended and burned,
i like how they spread far and wide and become the green coat of the
mountains again.

what i cannot understand is the departure of two lovers
who slept once under the moon on a dark night on that same grass.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
