  9633.     

not to judge: the phenomenon

not to judge
never to educate
or praise
or condemn
or even to philosophize
not to convince
never to substantiate
not to elaborate
but just to carefully see
observe
not even to translate
not to speak
not even to explore
but only to record
about this
phenomenon
to write, that is.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  9634.     

not to molest the trees

do not use wood
in a sense do not cut a tree
do not use paper
in a sense do not write anything there
try using this computer
do not bother the paper the wood the trees
do not bother the pen either
there might be papery in there
like ink from wood like sap from a tree

we were born with thoughts and ideas
great minds

there was no paper in our mouth inside our brains
no trees cut by the axe in our hands
the worlds much safer then
and colder and fresher
and shady

and grassy and flowery
moonlighted and free
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  9635.     

not to take other people seriously

a father has a child to take care
mothers have fathers
they form a circle of their own
and you who is outside
this circle,

why take them seriously?
when you are an outsider and an outsider is always an outsider

there is no way for you to be there
for as old as humanity
those that belong to them be it chattels,
slaves,
things,
pots, kettles, horns,
sticks, glasses,
dresses, coats and ties
and children
and parents
and grandparents

they always have themselves
and you do not have them
as they do not have you too

so if i were you
and as you consider me a wise man
take time with your journey
enjoy every moment
pick those flowers along the way
whistle
dance
and if you must
plunge into that cool river beside the path
at the foot of the mountain
savor the water
relax
and just be yourself
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  9636.     

not tough enough

when i left home
i was with

strength and then
i tread the ways of life
and met
beauty and lust
and love
desire

i thought i had what
it takes
to be tough
in all these

i plunge and
take the swim of life
in the oceans
of its depths

i join caprice and whims
and bias
and prejudice

and when age crawl
over my forehead
taking away
my hair and
aggression

i realize i am weak
i give in
to the wishes of death
i embrace
the acceptance
of my humanity

and then i give myself
a name: man
