The Goal Of Poetry

it is simply to reach
out to people
with our verbal hands
these mental arms
and make them
look

deeper

The Goat

you are the goat
set free on the field
of green grass
and you eat every
herb that your
eyes feast upon

unleashed your
feet jump for your
freedom

now your master
has come and
takes a glance
of your beautiful
body

he stares at you
looking closely
in your face for
that last laughter
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  13599.     

The Goat.....

you remember how it
was a kind of play with
that goat
in the mountain of your
father

the goat chases you
and you run
like a child to avoid
its sharp horns

sometimes however
you confront this dilemma
of horns
and you hold it with your hands
and test your powers as
you begin to twist its neck
or lift it up to the sky
and feel that you are like
Hercules

when the goat cries in pain
you return to your senses
unable to kill the animal
for it is not time yet


for there are reasons for
killing
there is always a ripe time
to get more meat and cook it
well and share it with your friends
on the dining table

for it is all set
the goat must graze and live
only for a time
for its purpose is but
to be food for the master and
his kin

there is no remembering about
how pleasurable it was
when it was alive
how good looking how obedient
how it has pleased your children
in that playful bout of
chase and run
in the mountain of your father.

The Goddess Of Justice

you want to have a goddess
of justice with eyes all covered

one hand with the sword and
on the other the scale

you demand somehow that she
will take side always with you

in the same manner that your
adversary wants it to be

to be true to herself she must
stay still at the center

unmoved by all your pleadings
until she finds the law that

fits and then imposes her will
without your farce or force.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
