  9633.     

old Man Baring

woe
to you
old man baring
even if you run for
barangay captain
you cannot win
this new game
that you have just
created

woe to you
i had your lies
all your nice pretenses
now old man baring
your life is over

welcome now
to your gold plated room
in hell


you see i told you
i told you beforehand
my dear old man Baring
no one lasts forever

join us now
in the world of oblivion
if you must
with your permission
we give you
the number one slot
in this world
of the unknown

  9634.     

old memories

not all memories are as sweet as honey
you think about those that broke your heart into very
tiny sharp pieces
those that hurt the legs of the innocent
those that shatter the lives of other people
you want to forget all these
but they all come again
as unwanted guests
eating your food, your house they burn
your name reduced to ashes
and then when all of these are done
they go out
laughing and drunk with justice.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  9635.     

old memories came flooding

old memories came flooding
like overflowing waters from the mountain
rivers came running
wood drifting
some snakes astray
losing direction
leaves too many
for the keeping of the banks
some twigs block
the way of the fish
and the frogs

i am one kind of a very strong damn
i have prepared for these calamities for years
of my silence and storing stones and lime
and steel to make these
uncompromising obstruction

things stop and i am responsible
for anything that destroys and spills
i am this dam and i will stay so calm
 
RIC S. BASTASA

Old Nights

the night did nothing but talk
the rain fell heavily on our heads
we actually did not figure out what was said

the morning is still beautiful
with sun in her hair

there are no regrets to the haze of age
it is accepted as a natural change

then we went to our chosen directions
we meet again tonight and there will be more stories told

not really that interesting
but there is no choice

this road has an end
we think that there is another exit out there

for a new beginning
when the night shall not talk but touch and kiss and
make love and then restfully rest its head upon the morning's breast.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
