RIC S. BASTASA


for the homeless...


it is this season
that usually loneliness multiplies itself
unnecessarily perhaps like
a virus,

do you say that you are homeless?
oh, be kind
be kind most of all to yourself
shelter it
and keep it always at home inside
your heart

if there is no one else who will love you
perhaps i might as well
but i am always far away in the home of another
and i am always at home with my own self
a friend to me
and so you are left with no other possible option

be kind
try love as always
be lovely

just be at home with whoever
and whatever you are.
