RIC S. BASTASA


at the crossroads


at the crossroad
we meet again

not as father and son

brother

we shall meet
as friends
and shed off
the bad blood

in bone and skin
in thirst and hunger

what we need
is water and food
and some wood
we do not need
words
for another round
of argument

why not brother?

The hour yet bears for thee and me
