  11997.     

the best poems i have read

the best poems i have read have been too instructional

on the road it says: do not enter
no u-turn pedestrians crossing
one way no left turn

at the door of the newly weds on their honeymoon:
do not disturb

and in my house when you enter:
you are welcome

i guess it is all there is on these poetics
i have tried soaring myself
to the skies pretending to be a bird
painted sunlight carefully with the
color and flavor of my words

it did work for a while
sending some sensations to my heart

it did not last long: i am looking for some
doctor's prescriptions

Rx: poetry
one capsule,3x a day
after breakfast

no alcohol
just plain water

to my failing health
it was the best
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  11998.     

the best teacher

the best teacher is the midwife

she helps you
give birth to ideas

she eases the pain
she wipes the blood
she takes the baby
from you
yet you know that
everything is safe and sound

you hear you baby cry
as she raises him
invertedly up
against the sky

then she leaves
in tiptoeing silence
as you sleep soundly again
closing your eyes for more
sweet dreams
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  11999.     

the best time

six p.m. is the best time
to find you, when you sit upon
a fallen tree
drifting upon the oceans
of your self-pity,

six p.m. is my best time too
to feed myself
with hope, when the rest of you
are inching steps
towards the
Dipolog cemetery

the people there are zombies
walking to and fro
like metallic pendulums with
their bob heads
unwavering for the possibilities
of life's
compromises
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  12000.     

the best way to be

you're correct
philosphically

the best way is
just

'to be'

that is how we are taught
how we think
we thought that 'to be' is inevitable

a clear and calm eye
of the pebble, as he sees it and holds it
with the false warmth of
his hand

lacking the ardor
closing the door.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
