Making A Match

some questions:
tai chi's age please
height, weight,
sexual preferences
favorite color
any allergies?
recent operation
drugs taken recently?

the same thing
with Mr. Taylor

and ms. tai chi,
this is important:

do you still wet
in bed?


(ha ha ha)

same question
go for mr. butts

(and hope they
are not just
one and the same
person)

Making A Part Of Me Dumb

there are always rules
most of them
are not for our liking

we like some other
rules
those that make us
free
but there aren't so
many

we conceal
and try our own
way of making
ourselves
happy

we resort to masks
we find
shelter in the
covering of the
night

we embrace the
cold arms of
dusk
we like it here
to maintain our
decency
for the day
where we
do not smell
decay

i make a part
of myself
numb
no not my ears
it is something
else
that we do not
talk about

i make a part of
me dumb for
you so you may
love me
as i pretend loving
you

there is however one
thing so alive
no it is not love.

Making A Self Busy

there are many reasons
the fingers fall short of the count
the mind continues to invent
and the body resigns
but everyday this matter of
tiring out the soul
does not stop
and if soon the body gives up
the heavens shall celebrate
the feast of angels
the showdown of saints
the smile of God.

Making Connections

Tendrils grappling in air
Making connections be
It the wind or something else
Out there

Just to hold on to what when

Thin green sword-like palm
Hawaiian leaves stretching to the
Blue skies and sun
Making connections to whatever
Is who knows what slices thin some
Spaces in between light and dark

Some shadows playing like small
Children in the night park playground

Anything to touch life
Yawning to what-is if-this-could-happen
Then what?

Powered Rockets bulleting to space stabbing
& Lots of jet nozzles buzzing to
Vast dark silence clean cutting lines
Colored smoke curving with light

Making connections to planetary skies
Moon, Venus, Jupiter

On to Pluto to Zeus what if
One baby-finger touching fine fish
Fins swimming in ocean-space out-there

Making connections in between haze & fog
What if it is there that which lies next to this
Next to us from far and they can be then near

We are all tendrils rockets baby fingers space ocean fish fins
Making connections this empty hands loosened fingers
Dripping sands and spilling fine touches to wind chimes

Pointing stretching making fingers in between
A short distance making always always

Connections to what if what if I am there too.
Chances are, you chase and find them, footprints

They were once, and they all left, just seconds away.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
