  13597.     

the wrong woman for the man who feels he is the right man

it happens all the time
when the right man feels
that he has wed the wrong woman
when the wrong woman too
feels that he has
wed the wrong man,
mutuality of affections
on errors

i sometimes feel that too
and i ask again
have i married the wrong woman?

have i been the right man
claiming all along that i am
the right man?

why? did the trials not work
for both of us?

twelve years
the feeling about right and wrong is over now

i wake up early dawn
still sleeping beside her
at least in the silent lonely hours of my life
i have this companion
and she is warm beside me
and then i think again
she can be right
and i can be wrong

who knows?
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  13598.     

The X And Y

You're own your own now
Touch and go
Like an old proposition
You cover distances
Looking for the right angle
Or way by which you may complete
The equation
To solve the unknown

The equation is like a long river
Without banks
It appears calm but cold

You are an irony
Warm at night
Cold at noon
In the brightness of the whole day
Yiu cover yiur face with your scared hands
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  13599.     

the yellow love bird

that early morning
the yellow love bird
perhaps tired or
perhaps lost
perched on the
steel railing of
the veranda, and i

approached it
with my arms stretched
my hands open

i flew away on a rush
perhaps thinking
that i will catch and put
it in a cage, it

got me wrong, all
i wanted is to see it fly

yes, i want it to fly away
where it must really belong
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  13600.     

the yes in me

my yes is
cautious

it starts with an
if

if i say yes
then what will i give

what will i lose?
there is always a but
now

unlike before
when my eyes were young


and too sheltered for
harsh lights

i know
how to give now without losing

if i say yes
and if i give something

i always take back
the silence of


my own consequences
in a box

when both of us leave
there will be no word

not a word shall be
wasted for it is expensive


perhaps just a glance
and then you hear footsteps


outside the door
some children will laugh

and then the rain
yes just the rain on the road

nothing more
not even the clicking of an umbrella

unless
you decide to follow like a kitten

but by then
you will have no name of a street

and i too will be
another coat wearing passenger

in that train
going elsewhere to an address unrevealed to anyone
