myself

if you think that i am having long hours
because of poetry
you are not completely correct
part of me is also darkness
the rest is light
there is this part of me that tells
you half of humanity
the rest is what i do not wish to talk about.
if you think that what i have in mind is pure poetry
you are mistaken.
i am waiting for something not poetic
it is on the process of an upload and since i am a free user
it will take a long time.
a very long time, and i in my poverty of spirit
assumes the courage of having to wait
for a long time
for a very long long time
and then when the upload is complete
i click it to play
and then i watch the show
its characters talk about part of myself
my secret dreams my hidden wishes
there is mixture of a drink
of illusion and reality
of fantasy and fact
but if you think, having discovered this secret
that i am all that
you are also mistaken
for part of me is also the sunrise between two breasts of the hills
the rainbow that extends between the thighs of two rivers
and the the white dove of the Ark
that brings the message of an incoming peace.
if you think however that i am harmony
there you are again
you are mistaken.

shall i repeat my old lines for you again?
now you have it, you are right, in this aspect
for i am this and i am that
i am never complete and i am also never empty.

Myself with you.

You cannot stop this engine
From running
Fed as it is with the nuclear energy
Of self-determination

You cannot block this again with
Any call for kindness your face of sobriety & propriety
Sustained as it is with the pride
Of its sufficiency, this engine of life

Away from human drama this engine
Of love and belief of self
Plunges into an eternal destination
Or damnation, or whatever

This engine must go, on and on
Unstoppable unconquered unhindered
This engine I call

Myself with you.

  9199.     

mystery inside us

there is this kind of self
that hides within us
lurking like another
kind of head on your shoulder
silent and yet so devouring...

this is the mystery of keeping
up with sanity,

compromises, neat and tidy
sometimes
and then dirty and rusty, who cares?

walk the road, and join the dance
lock the room and be so silent

talk to yourself and be at peace.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  9200.     

N1

finally you find what
discarding means
they choose themselves
and talk the language they have
chosen
you do not walk your talk
you cling to the sound
of your heart
you follow the light within
you invent your own language now
like no parrot
happily you wade in your own
water
traverse your own territory
silently
you will find yourself
among the rocks
and pebbles
each unique
each undiagnosable
there is joy
in every color
hilarity in every
damnation
