  11997.     

the difference between a rooster and a man

on the grass i see this rooster wearing a thick red comb,
tall for its lowly status, and well muscled as may be gleaned from the
thickness of its black, red and white feathers

how can he notice me stopping by to observe it
when its attention is focused on two slender hens
one is red the other white getting near it
and without any inhibition at all he copulated on each
of those two slender hens, quickly as a quickie

i can imagine in a few days, the two hens cackle with
lots of eggs for the owner now prepared with a big basket
to bring the produce to a crowded market

if i as a man does what a rooster does, you very well know
what happens next

it will be the people of this republic v. ric
and his dismissal from the government service

it makes me think however, on the other hand, the happiness of
the owner selling more eggs in the market because the rooster
had been kind and obliging to the two hens and the other hens in the yard

what about it God?

The Difference Between Us

i

what we know
has scared us
and we can even
predict when
we end our days

we know where it
is now,
it is inside our
veins
and flows like
a venom
from the snake
which bit and
then crawls
quickly into
a thick bush.

we are not afraid
about it for now
nay, we have become
powerful with such
knowledge
we have embraced
wisdom
like Socrates with
his poison.

ii

you are all happy
with your coming days
the summer and the
sea, the ball and
the boat
the foams of joys
where you dip your
bodies for a week
or son

there is something
however that we all know
and which you still
refuse to know
and act as quickly as
we did to ourselves

there is a sword in
above your head
there is a time bomb
in your heart

we are about to see
what you do not want
to be seen

and yet, why should we
be scared about you?

Enjoy your days
Have fun and love
as fast as you can....

  11999.     

the difference between you and me....

perhaps we have the same vices,
we write to confuse, but we drive some points,
like nails on sandalwood,
not those rusty ones that make the sound
of 'trying hard'
we are original in these, competing only with
our own syllables,
we may have the same vices
i may have written all those words to confuse
but mine is a series of stairs
leading to the door to the room to the window
to the skies
and then everything i am is gone
but you do not notice it
you think that i am still the chair and the table
the napkin and
the spoon.

my wings are hands
my hands are winds,
my mind are planes,
my soul a boat,
what i write are mirages
you see, you cannot touch.

  12000.     

the dignified rebel

for you to win, you should have adopted
the chameleon thing,
take the color of who is powerful
hold their hands, and be them
even for the moment that you still need them

you are as hardheaded as a rebel
whose color is blood against those walls of the towers
you raise your hands in the shape of a fist
and shout your freedom in the streets of murder

look at you, you're out now, ostracized, stinking fool
i pity you

but on the other hand, you are true and dignified
a true man in the bravery of a defeat
seldom growing in the fields of honor.

i must salute you then.
you let me live.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
