  10797.     

shadow of a fish

i swear i have seen the shadow of
a dried fish
its head hanging on the chimney
on a very long thin thread
of life and death

i like the scene of its shadow
dancing on my empty white
porcelain plate
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  10798.     

shadow of doubt

oh! i know that you are there
just lurking behind
my own light
but don't be angry
for i don't
really mind

for whether
i like you or not
or whether i finally get rid of you
strangle you and kill you
finally (am i a serial killer?)
nothing changes the truth
that i am part of you
and you are
essentially a part of me

ah, you wait when i am
pure blackness
when my light is gone
when everything is nothing but absence

you reign, you win.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  10799.     

Shadows of all of you

Outside it is dark
i am the only one
on that open road.

everyone is inside
their houses now
with their loved ones.

outside i am the only
one walking still looking
for a home.

my heart trembles for
this, my brains flying
like birds looking for
more edible grains.

time is warped
i still like the past
the future is a vague
misty colored window
where i only see
shadows of all of you.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  10800.     

shadows thinning out

you all know
that the shadow thins out at noontime

at high noon
the shadow and the body become one

there is no more speculation
about why the shadow and the body are different

on extreme light
you see the truth casting no shadows of doubt

something false flashes not shadow
at this moment

such thing happens on the power of the stare
when an eye looks straight to another eye

when the other sobs into a cry
then the telling of the true story begins.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
