  11565.     

The back view

I walk around
an oval path unloading
all thoughts
to the spiral winds

from a distance i see
an man with a faded blue coat
and a boy beside him wearing
a straw hat

they are watching a herd of
water
buffaloes grazing on
a stretch of grass

the morning is calm and
cold

a cable wire connects two
long poles
running above the man and
and the boy

on the cable wire is
a white dove
perching

I walk around the oval
ground
and no one is taking
the walk with
me
this early morning

from a distance i am
indifferent
seeing
only
the back view of
of things

  11566.     

the bad hostess...

she says
come early
we miss you
we just arrive
from
las vegas

asap

7: 30 pm
dinner starts
conversations
roll
like marbles
or pins

and she says
i remember when you
were still so young
you and your mom
slept in our
ancestral house
you were so smart
articulate

and you
called me
dumb.

  11567.     

The Bad, The Worse And The Worst

THE bad has arrived
how can i refuse it? Then
it gets worse,
i have no cure for it,
and then
it goes worst,
it wants to eat me
but i stay cool
there is no reason
to panic

i hold on to the arms
of reason

the bad is temporary
just like the worse
the worst is simply the symptom
that bad is about end

when they leave
they leave together

so i just sit there
fan myself
and do not mind about
all of them
at all

they are bad anyway
and do not deserve my
attention

in that room
i only prepare
a cup of vanilla
ice cream
for myself

  11568.     

The Baggage on that Long Long Road to Nowhere...

having traveled most
with distances multiplying upon itself like
a replicating virus,
one reaps the fruits of the silences of distances
the
wisdom of the road that is never satisfied upon its length
long longing
for rest
like a baggage that you leave upon the road
asking if somebody
is dishonest to keep it up for good
not revealing
the cruelty of ownership to anyone who comes back and claims
to be the
it.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
