  11557.     

That Is What Is Happening To You

Ice cream on rainy days
black hot coffee for summer

No saver for the flood
no firemen for the fire
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  11558.     

That Isolation

watching the two of you
in such a huddle
at noon
till nighttime
i can imagine the pain
in those
suppressed silence

i could be too stupid to
dare ask

your face shows the magnificent
pretense
just like the other

when i look to the other side
you show the truth

i do not bother checking some more
you both, are entitled to your own

opinions of the flesh, as i try
somewhere else to find

what ought to be
right what ought to be done

it is after all not a question of
pain or
ecstasy

but i think it is more of the nobility
that dignity in the journey

of solitude, of distance, of
identity in honored isolation.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  11559.     

that kindness before death....

he said that at that moment when he knew he was about to die
he forgot those who borrowed him money,

but for those with whom he borrowed,
he kept on enumerating them, with the last request that they all shall be paid from the wealth that he had amassed for himself when he was still alive.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  11560.     

that letter

i will be honest with you
i once wrote a letter
for you
many years ago
telling
that I LOVE YOU

but then something
wrong went with my mind

childish, immature
selfish,
fleshy, they call me

i took the letter
and read it again
under the lamp
dim
near my bed

i was hesitant to tell
you what i really feel
because i know
you would not believe me
anyway

(liar! liar! you always
call me that name)

and so let me be honest
with you
i decided not to send
it
despite its truth

i folded it
shaped it into the form
of a japanese crane

(origami, that is the
art of paper folding
and the japanese believe
that an origami crane
can cure the sick
the loved one
and i believe that
too)

i looked at it carefully
when it was finished
the shape of
a crane, the white one
with letters on it

and then i opened
my window
it was cold and dark
and i sent the
crane into the
open space
beyond me

i never dreamed
that it will reach
you
i did not believe
in love
i did not believe
in you
