  11601.     

that solitude with the stars and harmless words

the last night
together our fingers entwine

i keep your love inside my palms
i keep it inside my heart
when i leave bound for home
at twilight

you go
you keep yourself in your freedom
you go alone
where your heart takes you

the last embrace
i leave all that is valuable to myself
on your shoulder

i left some tears on
the white blankets
as souvenir

i will be back in the house
where i am alone again

inside the car
i weep

  11602.     

that something which went wrong

there is a ripe papaya
too ripe for my hold and i climb it
too weak for my body
the tree swings to the other side
and then the papaya fruit falls to the
ground
crushed

something goes wrong somewhere
something that you are about to hold
and yet crushes to the ground
looks like a vomit &
you don't want to eat it
back
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  11603.     

that spot....

this is a blank slate.
when i write some words on it
and you begin to read each
something really happens
though you do not know it
because you are too busy with
the reading of the word

either a part of me dies or lives
it depends on where you stop
and when

tomorrow i shall write again
you must learn where you stopped and
when.

it is that precise moment
that you make me begin to write again.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  11604.     

that stage of denial....

i do not wish to write about pain,
an artist has to clean the mess and write instead
about

happiness, but it is not here and what is here instead
insistent and forceful is

pain, but i refuse to give in to its demands to inflict
pain to my words,

i smile,
i offer silence,
i like to hear the falling of the pin
on that carpeted
floor,

i hear it,
i walk away, i dabble in all that the trees are singing
on a rainy day,

i do not wish to write about your pain,
i do not feel it somehow,

i feel mine, but what is the use of recognizing the one that hurts you
and destroys you

for when, until when,
i choose now,

i shall write about a landscape of green grass, where trees are tall and huge, where plains travel infinitely into space

where seas are calm where fish sleeps comfortably on the seaweeds
and corals,

where butterflies flutter like shreds of paper from a building high,

on this stage of denial
i shall dance my mambo.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
