Some Ramifications Of My Being

why did it take me
a very long time to see the beauty of delay?
the wonders of loafing
the excitement that procrastinations have caressed
in my whole body?
why did you not make me understand
the kindness of postponements?
the usefulness of emptiness?
the fulness of this hollowed
existence

had i known the joy of absence
i should not have come with you
had i felt the perfection of myself

alone

i would not have consented
the world to
touch me.

Some Reasons Why The Dog Is Chasing Its Own Tail

it could be that there is a flea at the end of its tail
and it is wanting to remove it

it could be that it simply wants to call your attention
the way you laugh
and it simply wants to please you

it could be that he is a chaser by nature
instinct, its history of chasing sheeps and foxes
in the farm in the forest

or it could be something else
beyond our comprehension
because we have not been dogs
for once

Some Sailed West

some sailed west and never returned
and for years
we who are left here
arrived at the belief that they must have
been dead
swallowed by this big gray whale

but some believed that they have
turned into petals
after a harsh winter when the
most beautiful spring later came

and they they spoke about
petals that turned into shells
that fell into the bottom of the
atlantic ocean and since then

we never heard of them again.

Some Set Of Questions For Beauty....

it is such a beauty,
many are amazed
many idolized what
is beauty all about,
talk of the town
this model, this
epitome of
godly beauty and
perhaps
even wisdom,

the picture is dated
march 5,1934

and you wonder where is
this epitome of
beauty now?
what is its looks?

darn,
loose, crumpled skin
too much hair loss,
toothless,
furrowed brows
darn
dark sunken eyes
like holes
where crabs live

what beauty was there before
is gone

are you arrogant still?
did you fill your mind with so much pride?
 
RIC S. BASTASA
