RIC S. BASTASA


those that die and wilt and wrinkle


those that die
like the flesh
and wilt like
your skin
and wrinkle
like your hands

these are not
i love
these are not
the reasons
why i am
with you

these do not die:
wit and humor
rumors, stories,
thoughts,
memories at the
park
disco nights
and candle-lit dinners
and strolling
at the boulevard
and pinches
and kisses
sleeping with you
and waking up
with you

these do not die
and these are what
i love with you

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.
