RIC S. BASTASA


she masters now the art of losing


at first she lost a coin
then her purse and then her bag and then her blouse
and then her skirt and pants and then it went back to losing her underwears

until she becomes naked

she gets used to losing and when she finally lost herself
she did not complain

she is used to losing she has mastered losing as a form of art itself
she has become an artist and losing has become her main business

now, i have loved her and i am having this problem
of finding her

i guess i must learn too, this art of losing

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
