Papa You Have Long Been Dead - Poem by RIC S. BASTASA

you come back
as a very young man
wearing levi's pants
and adidas fitting shirt
you are smiling
as you open the knob
of our door

i do not like this lie
papa you have been dead
in 1987 and there is no more
reason for you to be back
goodbye had been so
well said

you close the door again
goes outside us
less the smile
the truth must seal
the distance between us
the past has no more use
the future too fruitless
