RIC S. BASTASA


In The Name Of Art and Love


i command the rules to go away

pigs! snakes!
icons! boxes!
door jams!
toilet bowls!
holy shits!
leeches! and
stinging bees!
and whistling kettles
pressure upon pressure
fissure upon fissure
veiled women demons
wingless angels
questions marks
and interjections
and premature
ejaculations!

get lost!

in the name of love
i call upon all the hues of
the prism
i summon all colors
and scents
sweet sour or
foul

come, come,
under the feathers of
the mother hen
of freedom

bow to a vow

we'll make more rainbows
across the mountains

even before it rains.

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
