  13597.     

The Writ Of Amparo

when you leave this place
everything finds no use for me

the home crumbles into a house
doors lock themselves like silent lips

what can i do with a house or an empty chair?
it loses me and i drift like everyone else

moving from one place to another not finding
the seat of comfort

where is rest? it is not found in the map
there is no church
no cottage

all the people that i meet do not speak
'no english', no word, no syllable

their heads turn, their arms fold,
their feet dusting me out from a lull,

when you leave this place
it will be gone and when you come back

what you will find is the darkness of the sea
deep within its womb of deadly coldness

its unfathomable silence
its cruelty in the depths of sleeplessness...

  13598.     

The Writ Of Execution

THE lady has
a long, black hair,

she is not young
and not married
she brings her
little girl in court

and tonight they
will be homeless

she is crying
and the man stood there
doing nothing

he is the owner of the
house
and he is not moved
anymore
by her tears.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  13599.     

the writer in a trance

the trance is here
the writer writes like
a kungfu drunken master
imitating the monkey
the snake the dragon
he sips more wine
to get more
some more into the trance
like a mad man
tonight he sleeps

tomorrow he reads
surprised about what the gods
made him write

disowning everything
he says these are all incoherent pages
there is no logic
there is no metaphor
to explain

you agree,
this is the one...

tomorrow, there will be a trance again
how can you understand? of no importance
is this one, not even a poem
i can hear you complain

this is the trance of
a compulsion, i myself cannot explain
this is all too human
god's way of shaming our
own humanity.

  13600.     

The Writer In Me

there is silence
in my struggle
there is dignity
in my suffering

coat and tie
flawless fabric
of my
existence

there is secrecy
in my quest
there is no sharing
of my misery

i have only sorrow
as company of my sorrow
i have only some tears
for my joys

i always have
open arms for Thy Will
I seal my fate with
a kiss
i always take the
incoming as
a form of hope

i keep this silence
i write these words.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
