  9197.     

our loneliness talks to us in images

our loneliness talks to us
and we try to listen with some memories
that refuse to die in the recesses of our minds

our loneliness are like hands that touch
our breasts and backs
giving us the pain, unnecessary pain, those that we could have
met with the shrug of our shoulders and wipe with a short
slash and sleigh of our hands

we talk as we sit on thick blankets on our bed
we gaze at the glass door looking for the sea and the mountains
at the other end of this island

we are not at all mindless, we talk like civilized citizens confronting
loneliness with why's and how's
we drink tea and offer it with some delicacies
sweet to remember but after wards the bitterness sinks in
like silt and sand to the ocean floor

sometimes i get fed up with this drama. i say i quit. i say i am a happy
person and i do not deserve this kind of confrontation.

i open the door and let the noise in. Loud rock music and
lots of arguments about weight and shape

i occupy all space. Airtight. I breathe and then I laugh the hardest.
Like a hippo.

  9198.     

our love

sweet love enters the mouth
from your mouth
sweet love from the sweat
of your body
sweet love from the fluids
of your groans
to the stiffness of my
pleasures

love hovers in the eyes
closed eyes in ecstasy
that is what is truth
that is it all about

the time for growing old
and death comes
i take everything every fluid in my mouth
and then i look at you
with all the wasted years that we share
i hear you speaking through a sigh.

  9199.     

our love for now, so please be patient

Though the rapid waters
Are divided by this
Big rock
At the end
The waters are united
Again
Like this love
Of ours
For now

  9200.     

our loyalty

amidst the loneliness
that keeps us in this old house
this is what we can do: you sing the videoke
i face the monitor, and i write a poem about us,
25 years on monotony like the sound of the waves of the sea
overnight a boat that takes us to another island
25 years of tolerance about our own idiosyncrasies
another twenty-five years
and another twenty-five years
this is our pledge of allegiance to ourselves
husband and wife
alone, in an old house, left by those behind us
for bitter or for worse

er, for better or for good.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
