Pre-Departure Poem 2

when i am gone
please do not think of me
because frankly speaking
and this may hurt
but this is true
and may liberate you
as wont
would have it
let me tell you
in the honesty of my
hands stretching out
for emptiness

i do not think of you
i will not miss you and
don't cry don't scream
you are a fool
loving someone who never
love you

is it harsh? yes it is.
i was there not just once
but many times

i am angry at yourself
i am angrier to myself.

Pre-Departure Poem 3

did the white rose know
that the thorns
on her side
just below her petals
are the ones that make
her appear
pure and beautiful?

it is the logic
of contrast and the
art of elimination
that work out well
in making us
give the most
of what we are
and not the idealism
of the category
which only says what
we ought to be
we become because of
constraint and
necessity
and so here we are always
on the reconstruction
not because of the fulfillment
of desire
but because of the
prosperity and intensity
the industry of pain

Predicament

On this red spot
I mark my plight

A halt
A hole

A standoff in difficult times
I want to go, but you are rising

An impasse
A white waving handkerchief

Your tears are holding me
Like clutching claws.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  11604.     

Pregabalinsky

to remove the pain
a man resorts to the promises of
pregabalinksy

it is the land of the drowsy
that keeps you at peace
with the world, birds flying in slow motion

the white cabinet stands there like a guest
in familiar terms like a penguin less the sea caps

hope settles on a soft sofa dressed in sky blue
imagining it to be a cloud
something in you floats and settles elsewhere

on your bed of roses, wet with your tears
you want to connect things toe to toe like a logical

arrangement of your ideas before
or was it long ago, when you finally lost the validity of

your arguments like trees shedding off leaves
breaking its twigs with the slight touch of the wind

from the North of your sun to the eastern part of your moon
'there is no star' you point to a black space embracing you

'yes, there is none' the darkness takes off its cape
and dresses you into invisibility, into insignificance as you close your

eyes in gentle surrender. You are a star now
meteor, taken into another galaxy.
