Noumenon

a thing-in-itself:

a wicker basket is a wicker basket
you cannot place love there, perhaps just plain fruits and
flowers
and perhaps even nothing

because a wicker basket is a wicker basket
nothing more nothing less

in the same manner, i am what i am
and you are what you are

what we feel for each other
or perhaps what i feel you alone
or only
is what i only feel
nothing more and nothing less

if i go somehow inventing that you shall love me
how absurd can this be!

for you are what you are and i am what i am
nothing more and nothing less

and so thanks, i am what i am and i will always be what i am
and you are you, and you do not know me,

and if i bleed, it is i who bleed only or
alone
and i have no right to let you know because you are what you are
and you shall never love me.

NOVAMECO A JOURNEY

You are lost and you’re telling me you are lost
And you are so afraid about doing things in the usual ways

So you come out from your window
You do not use the door
Or the stairs because as you said you do not like to things
In the most usual ways

You are tired of the usual ways and they do not appeal to your
Sense of exciting
Journey

A journey to the unusual to the unknown desert to the undiscovered
Ways
When you go home tonight you shall take the path of stars
As you wonder
To this place

Where there are not stairs no doors no windows
Where there is no house


And you take the journey alone and there will be no directions
You will like it
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  9507.     

now i decide to fly away from the home of the pigs

everything has been concealed
for years
i have lived with the pigs
in the mud
and ate the left-over foods
of our masters

but then today
i feel the feathers growing on my side
i have strong wings
my claws are pushing in my feet
no longer hoofs
and hair

the wind from the sea
breaks the truth it brings

on my beak is the break
once upon a time a seagull lost an egg in the pigsty
unaccounted

i was that egg

i am a seagul now
to the full
of my potentials

goodbye brother pigs now i must fly away to the farther seas
to the higher skies

my destiny
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  9508.     

Now And Eternity

i have to content myself
with temporary reliefs thinking that it gives me
an extension of time
a pinch of this salt
a crumb of pearl
a grain of sugar

to walk with life and not stop
as it goes on alone with its journey even without me,

i shut the window of eternity
and please myself with what is so temporary in my room
on my pillow that rests my head
in sweeter sleep

there are fewer tears shed rather than the anxieties that go
with living beyond what i still clasp within my hands
my fingers still fidgety
over what is next

i know what is there beyond me but you cannot blame me
for settling for less
because it is too far yet and here i am
still bouncing with the pinkness of my age,
the reddish cheek that i still have
on my face

the wild thoughts that like horses in the pastures of my mind

in short if eternity is true
and the sacrifice is too much

i guess i have to take it later
and for the meantime settle with the
whiteness of this chicken egg
at the center of the scarlet
table
waiting for my hungry mouth
to eat

there is a time for everything
do not blame me for grabbing what is now
this relevance
and touchable
hardness

this is the moment that may take me there
who knows?
 
RIC S. BASTASA
