  11577.     

the barrio in the south

the green waters rise
to rinse the roots of the coconut trees

the lilies float
the ripples carry them to a joyful journey
to the banks of the river
where the children play

this is the place that you miss
an island a hut a river
the peace and quiet
of the ipil-ipil leaves
showering when the wind passes

  11578.     

the basic law of survival

when you are so hungry
hungrier than a dog
who cares about the cleanliness of the food
that is available for your taking?

when you are too tired
you do not mind what place is it that sleep takes you
you just dropp dead
and snore

in the most basic instincts
man can be anything

in the worst form of our emptiness
whatever is it that fills us for the meantime
we shall take in

we do not bother if it comes from God anymore
heaven and hell become nothing in the making

it is the basic law of survival
religion, morality, ethical standards
do not matter.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  11579.     

the basic of breathing....

he runs
out of luck
whatever he touches
turns into
nothing
she looks at those
who also runs
out of luck
and she smiles
i had it all when
i was young
and still have it
when i have become
older
numbed,
it does not
affect her anymore
she dismisses luck
she needs none of
them,
she is on her own now
and she
advises him too well
what we need says she
are so simple
we breathe
and so we live.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  11580.     

The Basics Of The Legal Self

i enter a room
and discuss
law

there is nothing
there
except law

no one sees me
except law

no one amazes me
except law

and everyone thinks
that all my nerves
and flesh and bones
and even my
organ of reproduction
are nothing but laws

what they see is
only the hard core of myself
the carapace of
of a blue crab
and that i must have loved
only sand
and the waves that constantly
erase what
law has written

they want to find if
i have a heart

someone finally asks
if i have any
and where must have i placed it
hoping to find
the soft part of
my turgid
existence

it makes me
egoistic at times
when questions like
these are
asked

i've lost my ego a long long time
ago
and i lost it when
poetry was born

i do not know exactly when
but even if by chance
a memorandum shall tell me

how can i ever tell you?

what you shall see perhaps
is a spatter of water
coming from
a broken
bowl of glass
