  1597.     

sister and brother

why do we have to be vigilant
about each other? a little complacent
one finds himself defrauded

a sister swindling a brother
this is not rare
a brother fights for his inheritance
that sister takes
without being just
unable to agree on common terms
they bring each other in court
not surprising says the clerk
we are attuned to this
as early as Cain and Abel
sibling rivalry is not nil
murder is near
roots are bitter.

  1598.     

small is beautiful

small is beautiful
black is also beautiful

be proud for you are small
and he is black

I'll be between you both
i am medium sized and
i am brown
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  1599.     

so what? ....

yes farther
is always the greener pasture,
gotcha
but what?
when you write about it
it is great and
they clap their hands
am so confused
when i start to
talk about
they all leave
one by one
like trickles of
rain
until i am left
with nothing
but your footsteps
on mud

can't figure out
why?
is there is something
wrong with the way
i part my
hair?

  1600.     

Soft As Reed But Hard As Steel

you know how
is it
when you step
upon me
as though i am
another
pathway or
an old
shoe

i bite
and i transform
my teeth
into fangs
my saliva into
deadly
venom and
i spit upon
you to
maim you
and if need be
to kill
you

i could be
you best
friend sweet
as
sugarcane
but when you
disrespect me
and attack
my own
domain
i am as cruel
as your
worst
enemy

you should
have known
better
 
RIC S. BASTASA
