Leaves Of Rice

leaves of rice
with feet
like soldiers
aligned
and stiff
and disciplined

learning
to live
on poisoned
atmospheres

to give
you better grains
a whiter rice
glutenous
on your
empty plate

Leaving An Old Ancestral House...

i always remember someone leaving the house with a heavy heart. I sympathize. My heart is also heavy.
It is dark and someone carries a bag and begins to step away.
The steps become fainter.
I like to help. I suggest he stays. But Papa is vehement
and decisive.
Many years ago, five or ten people already left this house.
I stayed. I keep on staying.
The house is empty now.
I have decided not to listen anymore about the sound of emptiness.
The house of Gregorio must fall.
Everyone here dies.

I want to live. And so i must go somewhere else.
Where there are no hands that will choke me.

Leaving An Old Love

that last night
together our fingers entwine

i keep your love inside my hands
like i am grappling to hold on to some stone

it is inside my heart
when i leave bound for home
at twilight

you go
you keep yourself
to your freedom

you go alone
where your heart takes you

that last embrace
i leave all that is valuable to myself
on your shoulder

i leave some tears on
the white blankets
as souvenirs

i will be back in the house
where i am alone again

inside the car
i am weeping because i know that this time
you mean it

Leaving At The Final Moment....

your marriage is destined
to be ruined

no one causes it
except you: you simply believed

that with your beauty and grace
and fortune

despite your rude manners and
inconsiderate and insensitive

treatment of the man you love
and who loves you most

you still believe that he cannot
leave you

well, he just did it.
you see, it is not impossible

for a man humiliated to finally
come to his senses

that he can still cope up with
himself, carry his age with dignity

and live his life the way
he wanted it: without you.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
