Just The Words

just words
just the words
they are written though not conceived
not thought of
just the words
just words my dear,
nothing hysterical
lest they fly away like broken glasses
nothing of the emotion
lest we be carried away like boats without direction
on a very strong storm
nothing of myself
i am nothing of your concern
no one nobody
nothing not me

Just This Afternoon

tired the whole day, i stay at the second floor
and lay my body on that
bamboo bed where air is passing through
its plats,
this is a cool mechanism
and i sleep

waking up later, it is already dark
and i hear the sound
of piano music from the other house
of our next door neighbor

it is yann tiersen again on the piano
and i remember this lady you guided the blind man
on such a fast speed like a piano music
on allegro
at the mall, at the center of the mall
where there is so much light
she left him there
wondering: what world is this? who are you?

enough of memories, i go back to you tube
and listen again

it is another yann tiersen, this time
Le Fabuleux destin d'Amιlie Poulain

who i am? i ask such a silly question again.
another attempt at a poem
philosophizing...

Just This Short....

i hate long
poems i detest even
a sonnet,

i keep saying
i am a busy man
i decide about
life, liberty, property

i keep on judging
other people's act

and i cannot do this
with metaphors

i need facts. Solid fact.
something to hold with the hands
of my mind

concrete, hard,
numbered, cubed.

only reason, and reasonable
doubt.

just this short.

Just Thoughts Early Morning

it is another morning
in the cancer of the tropics
the chickens jump from
the trees where they roost
for the night
the cocks faithfully crow
you can hear the cackling
as sounds of the day

later the motorcycles
ramble their engines on the
roads
of this small village
where i live

people dress themselves
for work
children go to school
with their colored bags
and tiny shoes

days are always usual
faithful to their routine
like a clockwork
like a machine

who wants to change it
and create a confusion?
no one dares
even death
takes a pattern

and so the days keep grinding
us with boredom
unless a terrorist comes with
a new bomb
shakes the world
and cause it more shock
so that new questions come
demanding for
more innovative solutions

who likes it that way?
no one.

we are like old rivers
old water taking the same path
to that same ancient sea

when we arrive there
there is no greeting
no welcome at all
just the usual fusion of
anonymity
and exhaustion and
the unburdening of that
load

some prepare for the big storm
and that is
something new
to entertain

this poem begs for meaning
again that is
a routine.

you ask it too
and it does not make any difference at all

you are as ancient in your question
as the snake in that myth
about Eden.
