Treasure Island

RIC S. BASTASA


D & G


between David
and Goliath
between the slingshot
the stone
and the eyes

let me be
just a page of a book
telling the story
about
the distance between
defeat and triumph

let me just be the air
between the stone
and the slingshot

i have too much
already of this
indulgence
let me be
just a sigh before
Goliath's fall

let me just be the shout
after David's
unexpected victory

let me finally be the dust
blown by the wind
after the engagement
the duel

The firste stock-father of gentleness,
What man desireth gentle for to be,
Must follow his trace, and all his wittes dress,
Virtue to love, and vices for to flee;
