Treasure Island

RIC S. BASTASA


Upon leaving arvisu house


the last message of Tony was this:
you have finally seen the light

we who remain here are still
groping in darkness

it is hard to understand what Tony
really meant by that

years passed,15 years more
Tony became a Jesuit Priest

then we met in Zamboanga and
we talked we avoided this thing

about light, we have nothing to
say about it, he said 'You are fat'

i have nothing to say much
i hid the light inside my fists

Tony is correct in this world where
we live, it is a big circle and he

hints about something, it is light
there is no visible end and there

is no visible beginning we only
inhabit we fail always to explain
