  12797.     

The Earth For Free...

sensing that you do not wish to talk

or engage in

oral intercourse like those previous
free falling conversations
which we
conclude to be honest and candid and free
and agreeable

i stopped talking too

talking is not important anyway because
my fingers
have taken as many mouths as there are

without being loud

i respect your silence but somehow i detest your way of
surrendering to the helplessness of

silence

i remember when i was told that tomorrow will be my last day
and which happened to be false

i visited friends and knock from one door to another
telling them

that i love talking and that talking relieves me from the pain of
having been given only one day to live

when i have not gathered the sunflower which shall bloom in February
when my book shall arrive next week before
i shall close my eyes
and cease breathing

we were under a pyramidal roof
surrounded by coconut trees
beyond us the sea and some white painted boats

the seagulls are busy catching fish on their beaks
while fishermen arrive with salt on their bodies

and it was that time that i notice that this world is so beautiful
and the people too friendly

and yet
when we leave and be away for good and think that out there
there is more to all these

there is that sense of obligation to comply
this is not our home but just a hotel and we must not be too ungrateful to stay some more

because we did not pay anything at all.

  12798.     

The Earthen Jar In The Garden During The Rain

it is there
it has a mouth gaping
filling itself
with the rain

this is a rainy
day and it
will rain here
for weeks

the jar takes
all the water
drinks it like
it is a thirsty
woman

yet just like us
it can never be full
even for weeks
or for years

there is always
a spill
of what is full
there is always
the emptiness
even in
the physical fullness

the jar is there
alone
it is raining and it
will rain for weeks


the jar never breaks
it is
alone.

  12799.     

The Earthly Bias....

you are
this man torn between
sky and sea

you belong to the earth
take note

pray
that the sky shall not blind you
neither the
sea to drown you

take the middle

compromise, compromise,
compromise

always have that
compromise

the earth is still the most
beautiful place
to live

give it the bias
that for the meantime
it deserves

  12800.     

The Echo

i make a sound
around the sides of the mountain
like walls to my being
the sound comes back to me
over and over again
like a conscience barking
a dog fenced
barking without end
i listened
and i wonder if it is the first sound
i made

what we do and say comes back to us
begging
that it would have been better if we have not
done and said them at all
