Treasure Island

RIC S. BASTASA


now the amor seco


at the football field
where the players
are either dead
or missing
or sick and still
dying

the amor seco

blameless for
those who come
by reason
of loneliness

shot by their
false bullets
the pants
too have anger

today, defenseless
the amor seco
annihilated like
unarmed soldiers
of our weaker state

Poem of the Day
