  11589.     

Sharp Incision

i cut through you
sharply
on a bloodless incision
you won't believe it
until i do it to you,
like this,
close your eyes
and i will kiss you
i have a knife
on my tongue
and it will cut
a slice of your
throat down to the
chamber of your
heart and you
will know
love,
it kills us,
bloodlessly,
explodes
without the sparks
of the 4th of July
you fell like running naked
under a blue sky
and then
it rains.

  11590.     

Sharp Knife

come to me as if you are a basket
full of luscious, juicy, sweet mangoes
and i will come to you as though
i am one sharp knife with all slices of
dreams in my hollow head
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  11591.     

Shattered Pieces

shattered pieces
my hands shall pick you up

and they will bleed
to make you whole again

shattered pieces
when you become whole

will you love me?
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  11592.     

She Admits She Keeps Her Thoughts To Herself

she shares a world
the room where her children make most of the mess
and they say all the
possible excuses
arguing as though they are all lawyers

she talks about the small cubicle
on the 17th floor
somewhere atop
New York

she swears she might have been
transshipped
to another place but the place where
she was born
was never taken inside her
guts

i listen attentively and can tell
that she wants to keep things
in their original flavor
like ginger and spring onions

but as usual
what is said is normally different from what is done
she is right
she may share her world but she keeps
her own thoughts to herself

and it is fair
since that is what i am also doing now
 
RIC S. BASTASA
