  2797.     

about you

a dream, it is about you
we are so near, and your are facing me
you smile but i did not

i thought i have already
forgiven you
and then i left the scene
i am happy somewhere else
without you
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  2798.     

about you (how disappointed i was)

what happened to me
you never predicted
it was like the story of
the ugly duckling

despite the weakness of
my past
the hardness of the stones
(the unfeeling body)
and the shortness of the
vision of that horizon
i have remained
more than what i am

i must have disappointed you
who never think that
success may come to someone
without the royalty of
the lines of the palms

it is i
who is severely disappointed
for you never changed

your mind has always
been a door closed

your heart
a stone house without windows
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  2799.     

about you about regrets

how can life be a pool
of regret
when it has long been designed
to flow
freely into that universal sea
of love

believe in this
we are meant to be what we are
every atom has a reason
every sigh
has a direction
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  2800.     

about you and the old american

to please you and your old and rich American
'lover', i decided to take you to
Tabancura Cafe where
indigenous paintings are on
exhibit on that day

first we had coffee and some
sticky rice delicacies and ripe mangoes

then the American (was his named Ted
for Teddy Bear?) begins to view
indigenous art, from softdrink tansans
to plastic straw and
drift wood and used
tissue, and from which he
said ' Honey, we have to go now,
we will be late for the show in Dakak.
This is garbage! '

Then both of you are gone
and i am left out
alone again in the art works of
my countrymen.

I sleep early that time
after drinking beer
and i dream about myself swimming
in the river of garbage with Manny Villar.
Weird.

i wake up profusely sweating
goes to the ref got a glass of cold water
and drink
take a deep breath and
walk my way to bed again

i pray that i may not dream again
about garbage
that i may not even remember about both of you
(garbage too
you, whose dream is it to go away from the poverty
of this country)
that i may not remember this political mess
of lies and deception
and more corruption to come
after this year's election.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
