The Envy Of Friends

we who have everything
if you only come closer
do not have anything at all
you should know that
by now

you do not have to envy us
we just know how to package our faces
in a box of smile and
that hurried laughter
beside the pool where the
party is going

what we do not have
is all you have
what you do not have
is actually not important
ours is mere paper
yours is pure affection

bear the lightness of your load
do not look beyond our fences
sit comfortably within the confines
of your wife and children
on that ordinary but
warm sofa

you know very well
we do not have ourselves
we have an expensive house
a number of cars, a bloated bank account
a network of friends
and super influence
but come closer
closer than closer
we do not have
actually a home
we do not have sincerity
we are not genuine
we are like wax that burn
when the sun
begins to shine

so you see
all is fair and square
turn off that green color
of your eyes
live your life
like you have never lived before
like you have never known us
that closer enough
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  12798.     

The Error

this is not an ordinary error that one corrects
like a grammatical mistake
that with a slight stroke of the pen
everything becomes correct
and acceptable

this is repeated error
one knows it is an error but one does not correct it
it plunges and pushes and pulls
back to the same error again
something delicious
so sweet to the tongue
the mouth salivates
and the heart pounces upon
a thousand breathings

this is the error that one always looks forward to see
one evening and another
in a room the two of you sharing it
you kneel and pray and soar to heights
without so many words wasted
 
RIC S. BASTASA

The Escape Door

I want an escape and so i run away
towards a door which has writing hands
overlooking a pathway of oceans where
imagination looks like it, vast expanse of
a dark blue
field
filled with monsters.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  12800.     

The Essence Of A Departure

upon leaving
another one passes me by
in fact has already decided to forget

perhaps realizing that i am another wasted time
or a shape of regret

an abandoned house where the grasses have become free
where birds begin to think that they own this beam

how many women slept here and rearranged their hair and looked at their faces
in that old mirror of the dusty room?

there is no attachment whatsoever
each is bound by the compulsion to leave because someone is waiting and waiting
and expecting for a meeting

falling leaves outside the winds are tossing them
you only hear the usual sound of the rustling but only for a time

and then back to the usual silence
that no one is interested to question

someone is familiar and shakes her head and shoulders
and we do not react because we fully understand
 
RIC S. BASTASA
