  11797.     

the child, the man and the old man....

i look at the child
at the farther nook of a old house.
there is no chair and beside the door
is a box, it is empty
and the child in fear
took its hiding there
a favorite place
safety box, safe house,
the four corners are
so silent
and the child is happy
asleep in a moment.....


time travels like horses with wings.

there is a man
with a long bird his toenails
are long, no time to cut them

it throat is swollen
bacterial infection again
or the weather changes
cold this time then hot in
a moment
dusts all over the place
and white painted houses

it is lonely, child and man
at the same time
and not one of him speaks
they become one box
and one flap opens to
a sky

always there are
no extra hands. it is reality.

there is an old man
with words of thread
sewing upon its lips.

there is a very dark night.
the child, the man and the old man
are asleep
inside a box, safe and
silent.

there is no morning.
it is final.

  11798.     

the childless and the anonymous....

we shall be the ones
who once walked this earth
and leave no tracks
no scent

we do not wish to be remembered
that we once were here

we shall be the ones who had everything
when we were once here
and just like the rest (of those who had busts and
statues of their greatness)
we shall lose every page that is written

we love it this way
we are not meant to be here forever anyway
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  11799.     

the childless spectator

the kindergarten kids
in their dark blue coats
and uniforms are playing
hide and seek
in the school

at first glance i thought
it is like that
but beyond what i seemingly
see i guess
something is wrong

one is closing the door
the other hides his face
and the little girl
wants to leave but her
face looks behind her

someone is weeping
i guess
but look at me
i am not really interested.

  11800.     

The Childless State

i shy away from
seeing pictures of
mothers feeding
their babies
with fathers
beside them

it is giving me
all fears

it is like i am
moving into a place
where no one
shall meet me

i remember one time
getting off the
train
when a deep silence
or vast
emptiness
meet me

while the people
around
feast on the
chatter of
their wives and
the giggle of their
kids

i guess i simply have
to create a world of
my own

where i will have
no more fears
where there are no
children as securities
for the future
where families are
not just them
but everyone.....
