  11997.     

the houseband

tonight to please her
he brings chicken feathers
the yellow one
put all of them on his head
and around his body
covering his thighs and
legs
and then when she comes
home
he executes a
dance before dinner

after that
on such a private entertainment
he makes love to her
to cheer the stressed body of
his working woman

  11998.     

the human being...

a thirst remains a thirst
a thirst for everything
a hunger for everyone
always dissatisfied...

wo/man

  11999.     

The Human Face

upon his face
the smile floats like
a gondola
on the River of
Venice

one can hear the
song of the
gondolier

the eyes of his face
are windows
opening because the
songs are
tempting

they are the eyes of
women
looking for love

the nose serves as
the only bridge
there
to connect the ears
and chin
in that atmosphere
of indifference

the princess is
the tongue
salivating
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  12000.     

The human Judge

AFTER A serious business of the day
when he alters fortunes and liberties and
slays what others conceive to be monsters

he pauses for a while,
looks at the pale green blinders
and sighs for silence and asks himself

am i fair? am i right?

IT IS hard.
The questions confront him
as though he is still a kid
and can be fooled at times by the
orderly presentation of the eloquent
and the shining logic of those who
are trained to be so,
He listens to the
voice within
the one which is
both comforting
and safe and then he tells himself:

i am fair. I am right.
I am doing the best of what i can
do under these circumstances.


Then he stands up to find his old pair of shoes
on the side of the door
arranges his worn collar,
trims his beard,
and glances at all these
cautionary fixtures
in the mirror.

He closes the books that he opened.
Shuts the computer off.

He leaves the room,
enters his car and
whistles his way
towards home.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
