  9597.     

on compromises of life

most of all these that
find inside the palms of
our hands
are made of compromises
for one cannot have reality
painted without
the necessary colors, black
white, shades, yellows, reds,
pink, scarlet,

for how can you have sunrise
in monochrome?

one divides a wall between
evil and
good, between gods and men,
one fences out those who
disagree
excludes what they think
are rotten
tomatoes,

this is our world of odds and
ends, of
explosives and tranquility,
of doubts and certainties
of faith and trembling,

the tongue tastes every thing on
the table, weary of the sweetness of
these desserts and misses what is bitter
and sour

the whole of man meets the
whole of this world
and lives in it
on compromises,

he ages, dies, flesh and dust
skull and thought.

  9598.     

on crumpled things

the brittle piece of chalk
crumples on the floor from the
hands of an angry teacher
her feet stamping upon
us, fragile and no longer
eager to learn
our first view on the violent
nature of those
monsters behaving
like gods

on crumpled things turning
into powder
in the same manner that
bodies turn
to ash
to dust

but must these gods know
inside those crumpled things and bodies
is the air that they have
not seen
the faces of our souls
passing through the storms and rain
rising to find for once
their homes in the sky

  9599.     

on dating a woman not your wife

oh i know how it feels

i wear black
a coat to blend to the night
when i date
a woman not my wife

i imagine a room
a bottle of champagne
a glass

i imagine i undress myself
have my shower
with her
together

we clean ourselves with soap
and water
at the hotel

and then we wipe ourselves
with a clean white
towel

and we spray perfume
to our warm bodies
we imagine
we sleep tonight
and do
the things we have long imagined

we imagine
we wake up the following morning
some light
filtering in
the venetian blinds

some lights
stab our eyes
and we feel the hurt after
the pleasures
that even outside the room
of the hotel that night

we still imagine
sometimes we imagine we have no guilt at all
but it is always there

we still imagine
and we imagine we can sleep soundly

on eyes closed
we travel somewhere else thinking about the first paradise

  9600.     

on early mornings...

every word is chosen
some discarded like chaff from the grains
but not every feeling is worth its showing
some chaffs in this perspective
are meant to be kept
somehow

when the wind comes and begins
to blow all these chaffs away
the fear is there
that some may get blinded
somehow

somewhere is a place to stay
and keep all those sad memories
bury them like the dead ants
so they cannot build their empires again
 
RIC S. BASTASA
