  11797.     

the camiguin escapade....

on those nights in that island i was confronted with
configurations,

curves, strong lines, bold strokes,
opulence, complacency

dark corners, dead ends, walls, twisted paths,
roasted scents, too general for you to really specifically picture,

heat, hot springs, cool nights, bird calls, dewy leaves,
roots of tall ancient trees,

i disregarded memories, i am into creativity, into something new,
what i never had before, falls, ripples, floating drifting wood,
rivers,

i never make a call, and i never receive calls from you,
my mornings are stares, gazes into far seas,

there were some storms that no one ever notice
such is the story behind my escapade.

  11798.     

the cancer notification

there is a time
and i know it has dawned upon you
late that night
that you do not want any pore of your skin
or tip of your hair
for another scrutinizing
scan

cancer is just a cell
that screams and goes berserk
runs amok
in those complacent organs
and chokes everyone that
it meets


soon it will be a time-bomb that explodes
and kills all those
innocent bystanders

you are prepared i know
and there is nothing to worry

cancer is your paid ticket to another trip
this time

the place will be exciting
exotic

or quixotic

since everyone goes there anyway
and those who left earlier

so far did not come back to report
about such an
enigmatic travel

look for a travelogue
there are no notes

enjoy the trip
grab the ticket
it is free

the flight is certain
nothing canceled
nothing rerouted

but this time there are no duty free stores around

you are


alone.....


(perhaps still scared) and you look at the announcing electronic board

there is no fixed time yet

oh yes, the doctor will tell
you approximately

not the travel agent of yours

  11799.     

the candice theory

something true is smooth
if false, it will be rough
so true love is as smooth as
tanduay rum
and false love is as rough
as sick skin
yet those who are not true
thrive well
and those who are true suffer

why my dear?
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  11800.     

the candle as metaphor for grief

the white candle must have a heart
not showing any emotion when we parted
much feeling but there is a pretense for nothing
dismissing what is complicated
in the resting place the candle is lighted
shedding tears till dawn
 
RIC S. BASTASA
