  11585.     

something that slips away

...because i allow it,
because of the way i keep my hands,
my fingers are falling apart,
and to keep my hands
intact, as i try too,
as i compose myself
as i reinvent my face through your
eyes,
and then, something slips away,
it hurts,
but i know it will not last long,
otherwise,
i will not be true to myself, i will be dead.
and i can't allow it,
so here i am, as usual, too normal
like the sun that shines
every morning
because everyone expects it to happen.

don't know if i feel my own
heat. don't care really. it is not about myself.
anymore. it is about the sun
and the day that it is duty bound to give
to the grasses
and to the rooftops.

  11586.     

Something that you cannot be accurate about

It happened, the taxi was taken, both of you took the ride
No one wanted to take the front,
Passengers
Sitting beside, no names, just chance,
Together, that moment, there was rain,

Sweat, abundant sweat, the aircon is high
Music was loud and the travel was long
A convention, you did not see malice

Friendship, sweat, abundant sweat
Even when the aircon was set higher
Drink, lots of drinks, until both of you were drunk

You hate to use pronouns now
The verb is untamed, your hair standing, your drunkenness
Suddenly lost, slowly, slowly, caresses,
Bursting you lost everything in your mind

Was the night that long really? Were the curtains
Thick? Were the windows open? Was there a moon
By the window? Were the lights off?

You do not remember, Morning comes, light
Enters the door filtered by the curtains.

You wished you were alone. You weren’t. Last night
Something happened, years ago, you simply could not remember
The face.

It is still horrible. Something you cannot write until now.
Your pronouns are not meant to be visible.
The shadows even not defined.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  11587.     

something they must see

outside the rain begins
and you think
that this may never end

you stare
beyond this window
your cheeks are wet with tears

you undress
and take away every covering of your body

it is dark anyway
and this time no one shall see
what you shall do

you step out of the door
and walk straight to the yard
feeling the grass
on your feet

feeling the rain flowing in your hair
on the sides of your ears
and cheeks

you cry some more
you shout with a wish that your anger
may reach the heavens

you run towards a thick forest
and then dissolve inside this darkness

  11588.     

Something Too Personal

among the crowd
myself stands like it were not me
i put one in front
and the other behind
the happy face is there
what lurks behind
is the sad one
sometimes i doubt
or pretend to doubt
which one is real
i laugh and then
promise myself a try
not to cry
mastered this game
of having to lose
and then win
make some imitations
and other selves
and you ask me why?
i tell you
i lost that appetite
to kill myself
and if i have to really
survive
all the other days of
my life
then you must
understand
why there are so many
selves now
claiming to be
the real one

do not underestimate
my knowledge
of who i am
even if i close my eyes
i know
which of me is real
it is the happy self
but never
tells it all
