  11585.     

terms of endearment

For love’s delights
We savor
For love’s demands
We labor

That is how it works
My love
This life
My life
And your life


There is no such thing
As a free meal
As love that is handed
Without a risk
And uncommitted

In everything we
Must always
Labor
& pray

For love to be love
Sacrifices are
Terms of endearment.

  11586.     

Th

there are times when we fell like
waste paper, that uselessness,
when we seem to be not connected at all
even to our very own self
when we are scattering sheets of paper
in the air
falling like confetti to the ground
and then it rains
and everything is wet
drained
to the dirty canals of our cities
down, down to the
worst of our histories

i let go off these all,
i simply wait for another sun
and rainbow after the rain
things do not last anyway
the good and the bad end themselves
beauty and ugliness
sadness and happiness

then every hump levels up
there is the plain, and then the grass and then the gaze.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  11587.     

th drink that you hand me

the drink that you hand to me
shall take my mouth
watering to your
lips,
the drink that you give me
shall take all of me
to you
the drink shall take another drink
and another drink
from you
and i shall not be quenched
until i am drunk
of all of you
and then you take me
all of me
and then i shall be lost
all of me
lovingly to you

my body dissolving like ice cubes
to your glass
your spirit in mine
our bodies mixing as one
and then we both shall be drunk
so gently
so lovingly as though this glass
owns the night
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  11588.     

th monkey island....

have more time,
push, like waves on the sea
tickle the legs of the shore
find its pelvic bone
and worship it
like you're a monk for 100 years
still searching
for perfection,

time is like the sands of the shore
can you eat all of them?
have time, drink it and believe in its miracles
be impossible,
swallow the earth
and be that rumored monster
that swallowed the moon

be the impossible
have more time
and be someone else

ah, they will all believe you
and then put you
the first number
and you fool yourself
with all these elation

fool to fool, you create a link
a theater, that it, have peace
congratulate yourself

it is all these craze
to be popular...in that island
where you are king
and the rest of the monkeys
always say yes....
 
RIC S. BASTASA
