RIC S. BASTASA


the poetry at night time and beethoven's piano music


this is like playing the piano pieces
at night when everyone in the neighborhood is already sleeping,

they wonder if there is a ghost in this house
someone that cannot accept death someone that claims
an unfinished business
still roaming in limbo and plays the piano at night

they are all disturbed and will close their windows earlier
turn off the lights and retreat inside their thick blankets

the piano is heard and it is playing some pieces of Beethoven
the story of his death...

it is not the same with your poetry
all night long, you write, and there is no stopping and the neighbors think
that everything is all right
that the lights are on because there is a baby in the house

it is you that sob silently inside the limbo of your dreams
that refuse to die
roaming the streets at night
breathing the cold in the darkness

the following morning, nothing is changed
the neighbors as usual do their normal activities
the street is heavy with traffic
people are busy chasing the hours
and there is no stopping anymore.
