  1597.     

listening to a child singing

another innocence
preaches
In a sweet song
From tight lips
A song of love
She barely knows
perhaps
Only has the feel of
A world new to her eyes

Such a song
such fantasy
Good for children
Shall cure a little of this
Big wound that
keeps rotting
In poisonous odors
Such pains
that keep pinning
Hearts that curse
almost
Learning all
blasting blasphemy

Such song for us
all living
Every breakfast time
We dread to remember
we
Who are dumped
in a damp
Loveless locomotion

I hear her sing
to a world
That I already
misunderstood
My tired eyes are wanting
of escape-dreams
My dirty feet shiver
for these rough
Foundations

Ah, sweet song yet
only a child-song
Who can stop such
a short swing to eternity?
And forget
everything
everything
everything
We can do noting for her
and for her song
we can do nothing too
so we just listen
and go back to our
work
work
work
and
work again.

  1598.     

listening to Bob Marley's exodus

i reminisce the power of the people
clenched fists of the masses
sisters and brothers
nuns and priests holding arm to arm
children in the streets bringing flowers to the soldiers
women bringing food for the marchers

tanks and guns face
and furious words of the dictator

i reminisce the ouster of the oppressor of the people
i see the plane carrying him out to another faraway island
no blood is shed

the flowers have power
the prayers have weight
the masses have the voice
God watching over.

  1599.     

little bird of love and desire

little bird of love and desire
do not perch upon a twig so far from me

fly a little bit closer
my heart is full of love and desire too

come closer and hover on the soft spot of my chest
there is a nest there

where you can rest
where you can soundly sleep

come little bird live with me
sing me the songs of love for i am weary

sing, sing, sing little bird and live with me
for i am weak and weary

when my eyes close little bird
come and heed this lover's last bid

  1600.     

Little green turtle

You are fed up
of being A little green turtle,

Wanting to fly
Seeing the clouds in the skies
Drifting,

Pray for nature to change you
Extend your tail much longer like
The braided hair of Rapunzel,

Get off the house
above you
And be a little bigger than
what turtles are supposed to be
And nothing greenish now,

Little green turtle
You can be white & flimsy
and even taller

On some cellophane wings
On longer swinging paper tails
On a proposed compromise
Of becoming a summer kite

Inanimate

But steadily flying by a strong string
Wherever the boy is pulling
That is where you are going


Do You still like it?
 
RIC S. BASTASA
