  10797.     

realization

to give and give
and want nothing in return

that is the higher realization
the left hand is a doer
the right hand
is blind.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  10798.     

realization of what seems to be detestable

when we meet
i see hallways and
a gate and a hollow alley
and i have not
hesitated to
bribe the guards
and so i had all the ease
getting in
where i am not supposed
to be
because i ought
not to belong there
damp rooms
and dusty curtains
and rusty pipes

faucets leaking
and rats
running on the ceiling
and cockroaches
stepping on
cheese and
bread

flies on cold coffee
and fleas
on the off-white linens

i give in
because you are there
waiting for me
and in this kind
of compromising
situations

i have always been
weak.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  10799.     

realization....

at the height of
fifty thousand feet where
the island looks like
a mole on the
cheek

you begin to realize
everything in life
is so uncertain

death can happen anytime
anywhere
and there is only one of you....

then you hate
thinking about everything
that much
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  10800.     

Realizations

it was not that long
ago when i want to give you
something smooth
as silk
or soft as a morning
glory petal
those which are
understandable and
clear
and acceptable

it is like a sculpture of
a chair
edges smooth
well defined
ends

or a baby with a smile
as real as
bow and arrow

but time makes us
strange
and make us pretend that
we understand everything
everything

there is something
that justifies our age
and that is when
we begin to accept the unreal
and embrace
the absurd as though they are
our genitals

they are here
and we become a part of them
without any
questions asked

and then we become as happy
as the breeze of the sea
early one morning

the reasons become accessories
and then finally
they are nothing but left-overs
that we feed
to the dogs unfed for days
 
RIC S. BASTASA
