  11633.     

t2

the green tiles of the garage
reinvent this old house

it is more livable now
the hammock newly washed

the shoes newly brushed and
the table newly painted

this house has reinvented itself
into something more admirable

decent, confident, renewed,
this could be a start

as you must begin to recreate
what you once was too

do not be just yourself
go beyond what is admirable

reinvent your mind
dye your hair, polish your nails

scent your soap and
wash your hands.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  11634.     

t3

you must have noticed
that in all my stories i am always the hero

precisely that is what history is all about,
the storyteller is the survivor, the victor

triumphant one
the lone survivor shall always tell direct from the horse's mouth

i know that sometimes you suspect
if the king is telling a lie or that the princess is having false teeth

i keep mum to all those suspended beliefs
i have my stories only for myself, on limited edition

not even my wife knows about the emperor's clothes
he is naked, the child laughs

i am in the marketplace and i don't give a damn
about rip van winkle or that rapunzel

what i have inside my room are the true ones
someone is killed and the murderer is a rich man still at-large..
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  11635.     

t4

between the divine law and
the laws of men

between the id and the superego
the wall and the other wall

between the floor and the
ceiling


between sin and forgiveness
between my flesh and my spirit

lies the secret of my sanity
and like civil law there shall always be compromises

plea bargaining, the golden mean of Aristotle
between right and wrong, there is something

that must make us alive
for the meantime that this journey is not over yet

between my left and right ear
we must listen so we can hear

between two words are the spaces
these are places of compromises

at the extremes of pure solidity
there lies this stupidity.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  11636.     

t5

a day goes beyond sunset
lengthened to a few meters
darkness dances under colored
neon lights
there is more to it even
than what i
in fidelity does: teaching a class
of law going beyond
precarium and mens rea
there was something more
in Oedipus and Antigone
the brooch that he used to
remove his eyes from its sockets
and roam the world as a beggar
holding only a staff and his
empty bowl
because even if he once was
king(destiny toyed what he is)
he sinned, and there is no law that
punishes him
he punishes himself.

their eyes turn round
the skies are gray
i hear the rain from the alum roofs
the class is dismissed.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
