Treasure Island

RIC S. BASTASA


She Is Fading and Then The Night Swallows Her Including Her Shadow Of Doubt


while she was at the height of her
fury

like a dragon spitting fire on him
and not stopping

he merely looks at her unaffected
though a portion of his lips twisted a bit

as though saying this woman is impossible
when will she disappear?

she is emptying herself and she wants all
the fire to burn him

but he knows how is it to be a rock
and a salt

he has mastered the art of being a nobody
and hence he thrives

she is fading and then the night swallows her
including her shadow of doubt
