RIC S. BASTASA


the sonorous sounds of the gentle rains


the rains are not heavy
but gentle
like the soft hairs of
a two-year old
creature
it gives the sound of
the sonorous earth
there is no tapping on
the roof
there is only the dripping
of a water flowing
from the gutter
to the stinking canals
there is this weakness of
the paper getting
wet and then laying flat
on the cobbled street
the waters walk like an old
man without a hat
without a coat.

WINE comes in at the mouth
And love comes in at the eye;

Before we grow old and die.
I lift the glass to my mouth,
