RIC S. BASTASA


i have nothing to offer to you


when you turn me off
what can i have but
silence
i become the inanimate
television
that watches you

stoically
i do nothing more than what you
can do to yourself

i do not have those eyes that
can say yes
neither do i have the courage
to say
no to you

i am the wood and wire
assembled
insignificant because you
have decided
to deprive me of my own
meaning

i neither have life
nor death
to offer you as
relief

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

Black is the beauty of the brightest day,
The golden belle of heaven's eternal fire,
That danced with glory on the silver waves,
Now wants the fuel that inflamed his beams:
