RIC S. BASTASA


let me be


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

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
