Make Up Your Mind

make up your mind
from this day
forward
take your step
and walk

away, let not bad company
destroy you,
be yourself, shape your body
clean your mind
and be free

there is no use carrying
that past and be
so slow
you are never meant
to be a
turtle

your mother
was once the best flyer
she was
a bird in the sky

Making A Candle

i pick up the pieces
of melted candle

these are the wastes
left-overs of those already used

burned, i cut them with a sharp knife
like bread crumbs and

put them all in a small kettle
a little fire melts all of them

i got a thread a slice of tin
as weight inside a mold

i pour the melted candle there
and set the newly formed one aside

i reflect upon life
i reflect upon the people with wasted lives

vis-a-vis
the new candle that i made.

Making A Match

some questions:
tai chi's age please
height, weight,
sexual preferences
favorite color
any allergies?
recent operation
drugs taken recently?

the same thing
with Mr. Taylor

and ms. tai chi,
this is important:

do you still wet
in bed?


(ha ha ha)

same question
go for mr. butts

(and hope they
are not just
one and the same
person)

Making A Part Of Me Dumb

there are always rules
most of them
are not for our liking

we like some other
rules
those that make us
free
but there aren't so
many

we conceal
and try our own
way of making
ourselves
happy

we resort to masks
we find
shelter in the
covering of the
night

we embrace the
cold arms of
dusk
we like it here
to maintain our
decency
for the day
where we
do not smell
decay

i make a part
of myself
numb
no not my ears
it is something
else
that we do not
talk about

i make a part of
me dumb for
you so you may
love me
as i pretend loving
you

there is however one
thing so alive
no it is not love.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
