RIC S. BASTASA


Someone Is Always In Charge


for instance the driver of this car
whose name we do not know
whose life story we do not
investigate
we are inside this car
and we do not know the mechanics
the name of its part
and how it functions

what is important is that
we will be here only for a short while
since we have an office, a home,
or any place
for a destination

we know what to do, when we arrive there
we pay what is due, then we go out of the car
and that is the end of that Someone
who has taken charge of our life
only for that moment.
