  11601.     

The Allegories Of That Early Morning

one can
after a
time see
the dichotomy
of the body
& mind

the mind
has its own
territory
it grows its
own garden
plants its
own towers
of ivory

the body
constructs
its rivers
destroys the
fences
and demolishes
walls

in the mirror
you see a
face
and you are
carried
with so much
sympathy

the carriage
with a black horse
begins
to take the body

the mind is the
white horse
galloping in
a different
direction

the peace of your
world
depends on the
power of your hands
to whip and
caress

meanwhile the flowers
in your garden
bloom and wilt
the tower of ivory
begins to
shoot its light
against that
vast dark landscape

  11602.     

the allegory of an unintentional meeting

the meeting was incisive
lie the way my tooth is relieved from pain

but he
thought about what i said before
that moment when
the glass was emptied of its black contents
that night inside a cube of ice

when what followed was the transparency
of air
when both sides can be seen at one glance
when goodbyes and hellos
look the same like Siamese twins

when one finally sees through a hole and for a while
glances like a window of rain where you cannot help but just stay as you do not like to dance
and then he
says that
the universe is there and it is



nothing at all
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  11603.     

the allegory of good and evil

i made a cottage
of nipa and bamboo
and rattan
by the side of the
sea

it is not that
luxurious

any common man of this
village may come and
rest

i put the sign that any
tired man may sleep there
any traveler may use it
for free

i was away for three days

when i visited it
the vandals drew a big penis and
a vagina as big as a platter

poured black paint on the floor
and scattered drift wood
in the center of the floor

how unkind are these unknown
vandals?

but we cannot be outdone
we clean it again
repaint it with green and beige
to cover the obscenity

i guess, what devil destroy
God is never tired repairing

because we have promised
to be instruments of good

then we must all comply


now the cottage stands clean again
welcoming still a tired traveler.

  11604.     

the allegory of pleasure...

there is more
to find in this mountain

the snails have not reached here
the birds are not telling the complete view
a vista of clouds
and little white houses beside a river

there is more on top of the trees
you have seen a lot
but there is nothing that can be touched
for the pleasure of the hands

so what is the use?

the feet are ready
and tomorrow is the final leaving

there is no regret
somehow he will try getting into the body of the cow

it will be nice there
there is more pleasure with the grass
and there is no moral
code to adopt

mud is still cooler for the body
dress is but a prison without a key
