Last Night The Dog

last night the white dog
slept with me
and so i dream about
other dogs, and fleas
and hairs
and claws...

but the white dog was
prominently inside that dream
she was licking me
all over

and that was that
which made it different
in this poem the tongue becomes
the metaphor
of something that wakes the body
as though
it is the white dog that gives
it a soul

Last Night The Stars Were So Many

last night the stars were so many


moonless
and i went on top of the roof of the house
and i laid my body on the galvanized stuff

i began to count the stars
at least i tried to use the numbers to please myself
and lull myself to sleep
like the way i have to count the sheep

the night was so beautiful
with the glittering stars
the wind was cold and there was this silence which asks me:

why am i not happy?

Last Night There Was No Moon

last night there was no moon
no stars
i opened the window
to have a good view again
of the nothingness
above me

there is the cold wind roaming
among tree tops
passing by my window not looking back
not getting in
not minding
its hands are wings embracing
every space

i am glad
it does not know my name
 
RIC S. BASTASA

Last Night Time Passed So Quickly

last night
time passed so quickly
i did not even
notice that
the people in the house
where i live
had already taken dinner
washed their plates
kept them back
in the cabinet
and watched
soap opera
and then closed
the doors and windows
and slept

i only noticed the
change when
there was that
silence
that shouted
i have
been unfair
and too
insensitive

when poetry
seems to
be my whole
life when
nothing counts
anymore
except my
choice of
words
and living with
them
all alone.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
