  10797.     

so much worrying as to what happens to my inheritance when i die....

what i like
for the moment

for the moment
is this
favorite dog of mine

curling under my
feet

soft brown hair
touching
my toes

do i have really to
worry about the
future

mother?

  10798.     

so often

we are caught empty handed
and time laughs and then asks: what have you done to your collar?
it is destructive of your neck
it is choking you and you still say you like the color of the buttons

we are caught so afraid and we are silent about this
and time begins to frown
and leaves us all
askance, and we ask what fraudulent creeping scorpion
has time become

it bites and takes a portion of our limbs
but then
we also learn this kind of game and time confronts us

we know what it will say
and we are ready with our silence too
after all
time was never a friend
all along it has always been a foe
giving us that feeling of slippery eels
those thorny porcupines
those roses that enthuses us only for a while

then we are again reminded of the wilting
and the passing away
of what we think belongs to us

  10799.     

SO SOON

So soon
he shall find his way
to the top
of the mountain too
just like you
but this time
he will not promise
anyone
that he will fix
whatever is crooked
and misshapen
on the horizon

he will sit there
take his deep breathe
and watch
all the phenomenal

  10800.     

so there is no us really

my heart longs for your love.
i wait like a stranger waiting for the next bus
to take me out of town
perhaps for another vacation
where i may find myself again
to discover some hidden joys,
to make my skin ready for
another peeling for some
new feelings perhaps
love, or desire, or lust,
but whatever that is, my heart still
longs for your love, i had you and
i did not have enough of you
and then you said no,
this is enough, this is arriving us
at nothing. I let you go, you ask for
freedom. My arms since then
are as empty and so light as
floating baloons taking the chances
on air. I know you see all of them
bursting.
You feel the essence of my silence.
Tell me what is it?

It is about a patient love, like a stranger
waiting for another bus to take it out of town.
Still finding more chances to find you
back again so my arms may not be
as light as a floating baloon taking
its chances for an upward air.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
