Popping Out

people keep
popping out
not surprising
they have been
there and i
pretend they're
nowhere.

life is like
that
presence
ignored
ignored
presence.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  11578.     

Popularity

without the numbers
and the name
for what is popularity
then?

i like the privacy
of incognito
walking all alone
along the
busy corners of the
mall
taking all its own
time
outside
tasting the
sweetness of
the park
and the familiarity
with the
streets

watching time
passing by
savoring the
slow pacing
of loafing
thinking and
pondering
without the
shallow
shrieking
screaming
demanding
mob
who for all you
know
has always cheated
on you
and if you are not
too careful
at the end
steals and
destroys you.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  11579.     

Porcelain Artist In Japan

there will be no
another man who was nice
during the courting stage
but changed
after the marriage
after all the good in her
was taken away

her porcelain art
pleases her now

she pours all the blood
of her heart
in there...
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  11580.     

Porch *

Because it was what we thought was meant by family:
Laughter.
A new house.
A party in the garden where the tables were filled with young faces. Who did not want this true and tender accomplishment?
This just reward handed over to the world’s honest men,
its citizens.
Every house rested on its joys.
So when one of the guests nudged a glass when she was telling a joke which fell on the floor and broke,
we laughed.
We were accountable merely for our own mistakes and committed solely.
And everything was part of the good story,
really.
How could we not love what it cost?
Crack on the marble floor just set,
dent on a polished kitchen door.
A small window overlooks the children,
one nimble,
one frail,
balancing
on the far edge of the porch.

*by L.L.Ypil
