  7197.     

i have become sore....

so many
beautiful
bodies

more than
sparkling
these
glasses of
wine
on these
tables

so many
moments of
ecstasy

countless years
of bliss
outnumbering
the days of
sorrows

i feel guilty
i do not feel
any

everything is
in order
harmony is
everywhere

i feel guilty
i am not a part
of any

i am not human
anymore
and to all of
them
i am sore.

  7198.     

i have chinaski in my mind

so you like chinaski
i like chinaski
too
i see him make love to many women
and drink his wine
and write his poems
somewhere
in the dark, damp corners
of the post office
or in the attic
or even in the park while
he strolls alone
drinks more than
what his mind
can take
and then
he arrives in his
apartment
gets his typewriter
and writes his thousand
poems as though
he is just talking
mumbling
to himself
all his sighs
and disappointments
of this world
now
well spoken
in verse and he
signs each
with this

bukowski, the man
you will never forget

he shies away
from fame but he
takes
the money just the same

  7199.     

i have decided to stay choosing tranquility

People come and go
Moving away
To new places
Looking for conformity

I am here
Allured by this sweet scent
Of champacas
In this mountain
Of contented tranquility
And like the tender
Flowers of dove
Orchids
Clinging to
The barks tenaciously

I have decided
To stay.

  7200.     

i have learned to live alone.....

i always know how to create a happy world

i do not have to wait for a designer of
a happy interior

there is no place for a home maker here
i can manage

i cook a stew of happiness here
put them in a bowl
there is no recipe or choosing of
ingredients or even
measuring the quantities of salt and pepper
to be put there

whatever is available
i cut and make part of the menu
if it is hard, i soften it
if it tastes bland, i add salt and
seasoning
and if i want it sweeter
i do not have to ask for an opinion
i put whatever is my
dream and liking

i have learned to live alone
and happier this time

you must see me
perhaps next year
and i will not invite you
anymore
to enter my
new house

if you give me a ring
i will not answer it
 
RIC S. BASTASA
