  11601.     

She Asks Me How Should My Coffee Be?

and i tell her
have it as hot as
global warming
up the brim full as full
put lots of sugar
and cream
a spoonful of coffee
black as the night
when all the good men
want to die

  11602.     

She Brought Them All Kindly To Her Grave

of course i know what coldness is
apart from something that is cool

when mother died her hands were extremely cold
for my hold
i let them go
there was no sadness
there was that happiness of letting her rest
and giving myself a little space

for tomorrow
when coldness comes again in an empty room
with open windows
i know not what panic shall be

my hands are extremely cold these days
when i kiss them
my lips become frozen
they break like glasses

i cannot speak
there is no way that my tongue shall give in to
words
it cannot face coldness in the mirror
of my face

since you ask and you demand an explanation i open my hands
and i let your hands touch them

i cannot speak i am afraid i will be cruel
you must hold these extreme coldness for a long time
so you can all let them go
like white birds against a dark sky

so you can also experience what happiness
i had when i let go off
mama's fears

when mama closed her eyes
because what was important she knew
need not be said anymore

she brought them all kindly to her grave

  11603.     

She Built A New House

she built a new house
on top of a hill

she had it painted
and it looks like a grass

she installed a narrow door
and a cross in the middle

she is old
and i know she wanted

a tomb
a mausoleum

she wants me to write
a letter

and with all these
what i wrote sounded more

like a epitaph for
her

i remember this
'here lies
the body of a woman
untouched'
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  11604.     

She Carried It Gladly Beyond....

the world waits for what we say
oh, we must have said everything already

the world still waits for what we really
have to say
because it knows we still have not spoken
what is in the heart

it waits for the hour before that
when only the truth is spoken
he spoke,

and passed away, mama didn't
i know, because like the world i keep on waiting

she carried it gladly
beyond a la
cummings

i am happy the world does not need really
to hear


none of the ear's business
 
RIC S. BASTASA
