Because Of Me - Poem by RIC S. BASTASA

because of me you begin to write poetry
some haikus
and more haikus are coming still
from what you have actually seen
in the river
in the pond
the geese
the leaf sinking

those little things
the worms
and cocoons

because of you i also learned how to read poetry
long enough
for the hours to become so huge

and i was scared by its big mouth
and long slimy tongue
and i stand before it
and let myself be
swallowed
whole

it is dark inside the hours
but my heart was like the sun
shining brightly
at midnight

because of us we have become complete
we have become new breeds
now eating poetry
for breakfast
and lunch

and perhaps, on the next coming days
dinner too.
