  7597.     

i'm sorry

learned by heart
the story of the moth and
the fire

do not want to die
yet
sorry but i am not
catering to
this and that

got my life
and will not waste it
with you

sorry but i am on my own
now
as ever before
you're a trap
a quicksand

so sorry you can't get me
alive
got a life
lots of sunshine in here
fresh rivers
and air from the trees
blue clouds
wide sea
cool earth
beautiful house
green grass

tell me why do i have
to bet my life
on 20 minutes
of your
happiness?

i won't
you're a quicksand
and i am no fool
in here.

  7598.     

i'm sorry...

i've met two kinds of
i'm sorries,

one is short and scheming and
escaped from the
gallows of the just and
the noble,

the other, got caught in the
clutches of his conscience
and with a self-inflicted gunshot wound
pronounced the sentence
upon his chest
and finally rested in peace.

p.s.
what will be next? who?
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  7599.     

i'm taking the photographs of the photographers

as they busy taking the
shots of their lives
focusing and focusing
their lenses

i take the opposite view
taking their pictures as they take their pictures
trying to define life
sifting all the details
the colors and tones
and frozen movements of
people and things

i am amazed on how amazed they are
with their object and subjects
i click my camera first before they
click theirs
 
RIC S. BASTASA

images of the past

Image 1

A big white horse
Galloping
All four feet hanging in mid-air

On the ground below it
A yellow butterfly

A broken wing.


Image ii

A dirty boy chases a dirty pig
His dirty father chases both
While mother hides her face
Behind a black umbrella.


Image iii

I see on the ceiling a little spider, a lizard
And a white moth
The faded yellow fluorescent bulb blinks
I blink too

The little spider is gone and the moth flew away.


Image iv

A girl on a swing swinging high on air
Her left slipper left in space
Rightly so
Captured still in the middle of air

The two of us look we did not move
Like a Flemish painting
