  9597.     

on the stormy days of our lives

in the garden of lust
give it a little dignity
in the secrecy of
intimacy
we can't get rid of
the flesh
try giving it the gentleness
that it deserves
give music to its moans
do not humiliate it with force
speak the name of love
as you
slowly close your eyes

lust is love's twin island
we slip our tongues
like boats there
on the stormy days of
our lives
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  9598.     

on the surface of things

when you see
only the surface of
things
like coverings

a table cloth
hiding the legs of
the table

gloves that hide
the wrinkles of
hands

closed
windows that
conceal what happens
inside the room

you see nothing
at all
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  9599.     

on the third day

seven days i will be silent
not that i embrace silence for no reason at all
not for the sanctity of its doorways
and halls
no not at all

seven days i will not talk to you
because i live in the shanties of my madness
because i thrive on the food of my doubts
for love that do not have mouths that speak
for hearts whose doors are shut
in the narrow paths of your shallow minds
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  9600.     

On The Verge Of Forgetting

i have mistaken
tuesday for a wednesday

i left my cellphone
on top of the lectern

i bring the wrong book
in class

mistaken Judy anne
for a Van

oh, i forget perhaps
that i am getting into a

fifty-one
wrinkled still in


love,
rusting love


beside me in this
room

is the sea
and i am this iron

wrapped in
white salt

i do not wish to
correct all these

i am prepared
into this forgotten
ness

time shall come
and claim me then

without a trace of
memory

and that will simply
be happiness for me.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
