  11997.     

the defeat of words....

i am lost in the forest of words
i always have more to say, more is there in the thinking
that chokes whatever word i like to say,
and i end up
foolish, before an audience that waits for my
mouth to shape an embroidered
idea,
a dressed woman ready for
the ball,
a young woman undressing
before she bathes in the
river

of time

a word, and then i look at all of them
those who wants to be awed
mouths open, agape
hands

and i ask myself
what is there to be said?

there is so much to be thought about
and there is no
moment wasted in trying to capture
what beauty is there
which must stay as beautiful as it
is never
said., ,

it is more proper
untouched by the fingers of words

just like life, at first i feel that it must be written
sort of

this was it, this was how it felt, what we saw
what be believe in

ah, on an afternoon,
finding those drift woods washed ashore
children pulling their arms

you realize how emphatic things are
rather than calculate, and emote
and do logic,
a circus of numbers,
tightrope equations,

there is more that the stars are saying
there is more to the wide open skies
in all their
silence for they have long spoken
before i
was born

  11998.     

the delay

they had two flat tires,
the river swell like an infected wound,
the road was muddy like mad
and then it rained heavily

time ran so fast, and when they
arrived here, the birthday party
was already over

they explained the delay
about some rebels shooting the soldiers
and they hid behind the bushes on the hills

we were not afraid, our lives must move on
the party pushed through

the music was turned on and the dance started with a salsa.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  11999.     

the demand for justice...

because you inflict pain on me
and i cannot touch you
then i might as well inflict pain
to the society as a whole
for you said you love society more
than what i am
as your next neighbor....

and then you cry out for justice
to the world
and then you call me
the congenital terrorist?

sometimes i throw this question to the air
how can you love the world
without loving me first
your very next door?

how do you ever distinguish this tree
from those shadows of the forest?
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  12000.     

the demands

her demands are clear
she need the money now
because her feet are rotten
her daughter has to enroll
for a college education
she is selling land
owned by her forefathers
she does not need anything now
except the money
there is no importance of memory
of family treasures of blood
of veins
there is nothing sacred about
a family tradition
it is her life, her rotten life
her prodigality, her rebellion,
it her insanity
her own perdition
her hatred
and nothing more
i am perturbed i am shaky
about my very own
sister.
