  9477.     

plucked chicken

Last night I stood before

Lolo Enggoy’s mirror

When he died in April

I never cried

In the holes of my eyes

I jump

Into the suicidal cliffs

Of his death

Carrying with me my fingers

My hands

I travel where I come from

Where there are no footprints

Into blindness into nothingness

Into vast dark silences

I return to the surface

Of my eyes—

The mirror breaks to the floor

In a hundred bleeding piece
 
RIC S. BASTASA

plunge

i have taken the plunge
deep in the bosom of the blue sea
into the depths of the ocean
to be with the fish and the
corals of this sandy floor

there is no coming back
there are no reasons on the surface
there is this final plunge
searching for eternity
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  9479.     

pnoy

let me be counted
i am in

i am the odd man
in that system

count me in
open the door
i belong here

in the scale
that swings for her
i am the panther

count me in
i serve the good
you are the one
 
RIC S. BASTASA

poem #21

at this point
i am short of words
i like to make a poem
which must show
the feeling of having
nothing to say

will it be like
this?
open ended like
a mouth gaping for
another kiss?
 
RIC S. BASTASA
