  9473.     

mr. and mrs....

she asks him if he misses her
it's been a month
and there is no word

his hair is tangled
his eyes dry as a desert
his hands do not have the warmth of the sun

and he told her yes
she knows it is not true but she pretends
in the same manner
that he does

and so life goes on and on and on
and people believe them

what a happy couple!
oh, those happy days
those long, long, enduring years

  9474.     

Mr. Mutant

because of pain
which this world so requires
you rise to a certain level of visibility
you have shaken the hands of
the cirrus
and you sit upon the crown of
red
wood Californian trees
this time you have many sources of
survival
the dew on your roots
and the water that is trapped in those thin air
above you

pain has taught you to
occupy both the sky and earth
and of course
those whom you have
surpassed do not like this
matter of
what they call us betrayal

and so they change the rules of the game
calling you
an Asian ambitious nitwit
the brown monkey with damaged tail

you are not shocked
you expected this
and that is the truth
and so you live alone, towering above all these disputants
you have a new name now
Mr. mutant.

  9475.     

Mr. Native, Now You Must Go...

mr. native
now that you have grown into a man
and learned
everything that we have taught you
now, you must leave
for you no longer accept any rules from us
you are big
your hands no longer fetch water for us
your mind no longer obey orders
you are free to go
and be on your own now
take nothing
for we have nothing to give to you anymore
with your freedom
now you must have burdens
with your liberty
now we have nothing to watch
we are even now
as you must with speed dispatch
what you want to become
we are not your masters anymore
as you are no longer a slave

go fly away, strong bird
find your worms
and monkeys
find your nest
and fly the seas!

  9476.     

ms. magpie (reposted) ...

you identify yourself in the mirror
and you pass the test
of self-criticism,

you have become more than
a bird,
and true to your calling,
you have become
his rare
beloved.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
