  7597.     

in her simplicity

in her simplicity
she carries so much wisdom
at ease with her
the rock of Gibraltar at the tip
of her finger
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  7598.     

in here

in here we come
without promises
of stars

we are free to go
leaving is not difficult
it is all in our minds
this dizziness about
our existence as poets
the last bulwark of
erotic thoughts

this is the place of
certain confidences
we write what we think
not what we are
we empathize we get into
the shoes of another we weep
as though we do not own any
tear we keep the silence sometimes
as though we own space
we move as though we are
the river we fall as though
we are the rain

this is this place
welcome back to this world
of words
bring in the emptiness
think that soon you shall be full
and then empty yourself again
feel the essences
of all these nothingness

i have come with empty hands
and i shall leave
without my face.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  7599.     

in hiding

defense mechanisms.
coping up machines.
lies and deceptions.
covering up. conceal.

a little fish hides under
a big stone on that deep sea
amidst the friendly anemones

a big shark is coming
and the electric eel is taken
exposed, confident, dead.

we hide. There is a reason
for hiding sometimes. For retreats
in the mountains in secret
convents with the nuns. In secret
hideouts with the monks.
In tunnels dug for surrenders
like this. To survive.

when things get rough
and i am not that rough enough for the
roughness that gets going, i choose

to hide underneath a strong
floor, inside a closet, under
a cabinet of folded clothes.

the sense are not too strong
to survive a crash. I hide. I take
cover. I make poems. My poems
are my shelters of the scorching
sun, the heavy rain, the flood and
earhtquakes of my life.

i am shaken. But look, i am in tack.
My bones rattle but unbroken.

The poems are my fortress.
The big shark is coming again.
Let me hide. Under a rock.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  7600.     

in his fishing expedition

in his fishing expedition
his bait is this bluff
and with gullibility
you take the bait,
swallow the hook, line and sinker

i say
baby you have not yet learned the intricate art of the spies
those who are still not captured by the enemies
in the middle of their yards

take the bait
and put it back to the sea
you must learn how to fish too

in this expedition of lies and deception
take the shape of the mythical mermaid
swim like a slimy fish but sing like a beautiful woman.
