  11589.     

Practicing Loneliness

it is the i in we
that has attached like epoxy,
indistinguishable like
pinch of salt to water

sugar to milk and
xanor to beer

tonight i will be alone
sitting on a chair facing the outline of the hills
light fading out
until what i see is only the flickering stars
above a sea of darkness

i will feel the chill of the cold night
a silk of mist hovering over my skin

it is the i, away from you and the we dissolving finally
decanting the i,
purifying the i in me

soon, i must learn this trick
of being one with me

in the darkness, in the cold,
i keep myself warm.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  11590.     

Pragmatism

it goes like this,
what he taught me
when i was small

son, it does not matter
which comes first
the chicken
or the egg

what matters son
is what makes us full


=================

pragmatismo

dili na importante
kon unsay nauna
itlog ba o manok
ang importante
kon unsay makabusog..


=====================

hindi na mahalaga
kung alin ang nauuna
itlog ba o manok
ang mahalaga
ay ang nakakabusog.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  11591.     

Pragmatism And Utility

it does not really matter
for the utilitarian if
God exists
what matters most is:
if God works
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  11592.     

Praise

praise lies within
the confines of our fences
something beyond this fence
lies
where praise is not a word
it is
so unnecessary

something beyond
us lies this something
waiting
looking
silently, he deserves it
but does not want it
he gives it
but does not want any return of it
he smiles at us

the way we haggle for the stars
when what is perfect
is starless when what is complete
is just
space

what is enough
light
illuminating this lock of hair
and he calls it
perfection
 
RIC S. BASTASA
