notes from chicago... an open book.

know what?
to have my own baby
is really an obsession
i made an attempt
w/ a young puerto rican
(now in her 37 yrs)
divorcee in 2006;

she got preggy in 2008
but had a miscarriage after 12 wks! ;

Felt proud but angry!
We ended up the affair last 2009 Feb;
Moved to Chicago Aug 24/10;
filed divorce in Jan/11/11(WIsconsin):

Final judgment last June 10/11;
Now back to solo flight....
(oh the pangs of pride and anger!)

...I want my life to be an open book;
some kind of legacy to
and for the coming generation -
religious and otherwise;

the 'don't follow' kind of thing;

I have an 'open secret' hurting
and disgusting experience
w/c affected my self-formation
and outlooks!

It's an open secret because
the last to know about it is my family!
Not even my own deceased father (6/5/2005)
knew about what happened to me
after they sent me to the parochial high school
in nearby town!

It's what I called a 'betrayal of trust! '

Notes From Dante's House Of Metaphors

along the alley
leading to the living room of your house
you put a very
fragile jar

it is empty

i walk casually there upon
your invitation
and i trip upon it

and it rolls away from us

i run to hold it back
not wanting it broken

i catch it and give it back to you
and you smile

we drink to something left
unbroken

we feast on things retained
we choose the flowers that
we have grown in the garden

we keep the silence
of long years still unforgotten

Notes from Fr. D.

First you hate
this government

second you take
the helm
after a deadly
struggle

third and this
is final
what you pretend
not to know is that
you have become
everything that
you once hate
 
RIC S. BASTASA

notes from her from a distant shore

how can you fold
a flood and put
it in a drawer?

how can you wrap
a storm and put
it your room?


how can you
keep a love letter
which says
that he is dying?

how can she be so
alone in her room
waiting for no one?
 
RIC S. BASTASA
