Making Our Own Space

this morning i wake up late
i see misplaced things
lots of it, like dirty clothes
on the floor
unwashed dishes on the sink
blankets unfolded
pillow cases removed from
their pillows
unzipped pants
missing underwear
tumbled glass
spilled milk on the table
dogs waiting to be bathed and feed

i stand up to get my empty plate
take three spoonfuls of steam rice
and two pieces of fish
a cup of coffee and i go out of the house
sit on a bench under a tree
sunshine above me and air breezing on my chest
i eat alone
and something's good is growing inside me
i love it this way
my own space of peace
amidst disorder
my capacity to choose
what i do
despite the negligence of
others around me

Making Sense

if our choice of words
is smooth and reserved like
a lady educated in a state university
they say we make sense,

if you are rich and flamboyant
and ride in flashy cars and live
in expensive mansions in exclusive
subdivisions, then by all means
you make sense

despite the fact that you are
immoral, and treacherous and
scheming and oppressive and
congenitally lying with your teeth grinning,

to them you still make sense
they still want to be pictured beside you
and you make them your own property
as they all adore and worship you,

i don't.
 
RIC S. BASTASA

Making Statement Brief

i would like to
be brief,
nothing to say
anyway
what else?
got mauled by
indifference
is anybody home?

Making The Choice Early Morning...

it is when you wake up
on a clear day
upon a very cold morning that
you are shown some solid choices
in the open
with all the pros and cons
as you sip your tea
and have a closer look at the cups and saucers
their gleam and pure colors
of white and blue
as sky and sand

the day is frank
and you are prepared now to take all the
risk
well calculated and
explained

then you grab one
and there is no regret
the light of the sun is warm
and the day is
as lovely as you can very well see
on both sides
of this
coin
 
RIC S. BASTASA
