M1...

i do not wish to have a halo
above my head
this early morning

angel,
just be invincible

i have always maintained this in
my mind
i am better in this
frail body, these brittle bones,
these tiny fingers

society gives respect to
the kindness of feigned weakness
the humility of
having to appear like a hollow tree

as i step out of the door
i take the shape of this pigeon

the messenger of soft wings
whiter intentions
 
RIC S. BASTASA

M2

a dura lex(sed lex) glass is different
it does not easily break
despite the series of falls
but once when you hit the
point of its most vulnerability
it breaks into pieces that
more or less
take the shape of diamonds

just like you when you go into
the most seldom sobs
diamonds are the shapes of
your precious tears
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  9599.     

M2...

of what use is the
whiteness?

the purity that you
have maintained in the color of your
soul

of what use is the red
in your center?

it is just a piece of art
pure aesthetics without any function at all

forbidden flap
full of flimsy fabrications

you cannot put salt in a flower and
say you want to preserve it
like some sort of peppered pickles

white soon shall turn to a bruise
freshness into a contusion

ponder upon the shortness of the life span
of the butterfly

get wild like a snake
bite, bite, if needed, bite the delicious apple of discord

savor.
 
RIC S. BASTASA

M3

On certain compromises
we agree on a certain indifference
we may not let them know
that within us are the wounds
that never heal
the broken pieces beyond repair
but everyone in this big house
shall never know
what is real what is true
for they must survive just as we
want them to live well
we feed them fabricated dispositions
longer lines of smiles
well trained caressing hands
eyes without any conscience
the incapacity to tell which is
right and which is wrong
and they must believe that
there are no termites on the
ceilings and the walls
no cockroaches in the cracks
of those kitchen sinks
no scorpions underneath those
wooden floors beneath those
foul foundations

'well done' says the law.
we are just behaving that way
good citizens of this republic
deal with usual turmoils

'we are always ready to sacrifice'
we tell them with uniform cliches.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
