  7197.     

For Serge Who Prided That He Passed More Laws Than Any Senator In Senate

The more laws
and order are made prominent,

the more thieves and robbers
there will be.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  7198.     

For Simone

it was not the cat that ate the moon
it was the dog
which is capable of since
its mouth is larger and
and its owner is powerful

the dog is spoiled and the cat knows this
when the dog howls at night
the cat learns how to sleep amidst the
abuse
the charivari of drunken dogs
missing the moon that they have swallowed

the stars knew and so tonight they have kept the distance
afraid of the dogs but still glitter
to appease the
cat so sad inside its nightmares.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  7199.     

For Sol...

smile my dear
the motto remains the same
since 1976

Life is beautiful.

and it will always be
because we believe that

Life is beautiful.

it is, in fact, it is.

do you still miss those islands of desire?
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  7200.     

For Tem On His Last Day

THE WORLD does not weep
for a quitter, no matter what
no matter how deep is your sorrow
no matter how justifying the circumstances
precipitating inside that cup of poison,

another poem is written for you
a sympathizer from another country
perhaps suffering too
like you

or us, but it will be only for a short while,
after the last word is written and read
the world moves again, spins upon itself
to complete another revolution,

nothing is achieved much, time does not tell,
but the motion keeps on moving
like a spiral, like a steep stair moving up
only to arrive at an empty room,

i believe in something else,
that someone is waiting out there

i guess, you are right, the end is reasonable,
but the means will always be questioned.

i hope you still have time to read the poem of Mike
i guess, sincerity lies there,

i still shiver about an old age that could not wait
for more time.

at the end, who knows? but you cannot tell. You are silent
as cement.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
