  11997.     

The Dressed Chicken

father kills the black chicken
and marks a cross of blood
on the temple of the birthday celebrant

he claims life is a matter of sacrifice
a chicken dressed for something

The blood from the neck
of the chicken gushes forth

there is silence in this
bloody ritual

between father and son
inside both of them they

hold that the spirits understand
how they must be appeased

from all ills and bad luck
the son must be protected

a father then washes the knife
that killed the black chicken

he is ready to kill someday
somehow when

another human being just in case
kills a son, that brute that base.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  11998.     

the dresser

she is all dressed
sits on a chair
waits for the wind
she is not going
anywhere
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  11999.     

the drowning silence

i am into this
drowning silence
and i am this
driver of the pearl
of solitude
that even in the
depths of
sadness gleams
even without the
help of light

this drowning silence
makes me
admire the need for
breathing

a streak of light
is all i need in the darkness
of these depths
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  12000.     

the dry land

dusts reign in the dry land
beneath are the skeletons of our dreams
in hopelessness even the worms
of the dead are dead.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
