  1597.     

deny me deny you

deny me
entry into your system
deny yourself
that gate of happiness
made for both
of us
from high above

deny ourselves
what we thought we really deserve
let our lips dry
let our minds go crazy
let the pillars between us
be as tall as the coconuts

let us accept for now
the bliss of freedom
let time simmer
let the ages age
let the wine bottle be sealed
and kept at the cellar

then we come back
for more surprises
how does our sweat taste after
all these years?

goodbye.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  1598.     

destiny

(for estrella dy-imperial on her death anniversary)

under the tall coconut trees
you warned all of us
to watch out

you had not finished
saying the warning
when suddenly a coconut
fell off the tree
and hit you right
in the middle of your
forehead

dead on the spot
t'was you

we were speechless
unable to believe

how death sometimes
strikes

the most careful creature
still wanting to be
alive.....
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  1599.     

deus ex machina

she complains about the storm
last night
for the leaves are making heaps
and this morning
she will be sweeping them

the wind comes and sweeps away
all the leaves towards the pit

awed, she says, because she prays.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  1600.     

Devour

The present devours
the past
The hate that devours
love
Anger that devours
you
Hope devoured by
despair

Night devouring
day
And day devouring
night

The moon devouring
The landscape

These poems like flames
Devouring
me.

My mind devours
me.

Now is my revenge
I devour
You.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
