RIC S. BASTASA


crying


he says he likes to cry when
everyone is asleep when no one hears his sound
of grief anymore

he wants to keep this grief alone
thinking that no one understands anyway

no one wants a sorrow that will be shared
or a grief to be feasted upon

sometimes he says he cries when he is bathing
under a cold shower to cool his eyes

to appease his heart and when he steps out
of the bathroom

when someone notices how red his eyes are
he tells them that his shampoo has caused it all

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.

If with light head erect I sing,
