pleasures

a smooth flow of chivas regal
inside my throat lingering
but only for a while,

a white flower carried by this vine
on its soft tendrils crawling an iron fence
a trellis as lean-on

a salmon sushi bathed in soy bean sauce
and a fingerfull of wasabe
inside my tongue the chili running
towards me throat lingering and
rising in my nostrils in my brain

hot green tea that i sip
slowly
chopstick on top of a teriyake
a bowl of seafood ramen
its flavors rising to the lamps
of the ceiling

i face you and you face me
at this moment
we nod to make another sip
of life
we face each other again
remembering a promise.

pleasures in giving

this morning
you take the water hose

turn on the faucet

you squeeze the hose
and water is spread on the bush

flowers are thirsty
for those nights without rain

an early morning shower from your
water hose
gives the feast on every leaf, on every branch

on every cracking soil of this earth

it is the pleasure of giving
that makes your heart dance

with the clouds.

plena

we danced the whole night
two for the usual
tango

we had tequila
salt and fresh lime


we rest on the soda
our feet on the stool

we look to the skies
dotted with countless stars

the fireworks come
our minds exploding with so much joy

oh my gracious God!
we have reached 2013! ! !
 
RIC S. BASTASA

plethora

In my other incarnation I live out such a plethora
of conflict that you wouldn't think I'd survive,
would you, but I do; I wake up enraged, go to sleep
in numbed despair, face what I know perfectly well
is condescension and abstract contempt, get into
quarrels, shout, fret about people I don't even
know, live as if I were the only man in the world
trying to buck it all, work like a pig, strew my
whole apartment with notes, articles, books, get
frowzy, don't care, become stridently contentious,
sometimes laugh and weep within five minutes
together out of pure frustration. It takes me two
hours to get to sleep and an hour to get up. I
dream at my desk. I dream all over the place. I'm
very badly dressed. But O how I relish my
victuals!
 
RIC S. BASTASA
