A Way To Live - Poem by RIC S. BASTASA

a little fish rises from the
water to
eat a bubble of

from the tree a
kingfisher with an eye
for fish
swiftly dives and
with its sharp long black beak
catches the
little fish

a boy with a rubber sling
aims at the blue kingfisher
hitting it with a
stone crushing its
round head and
sharp long and black beak
to the ground

a ripe coconut falls
from a tree and
hits the head of the
boy below

the lizard that climbs
the coconut tree
looking for brown beetles
at the top
does not notice how
all these events
