RIC S. BASTASA


Twists and Twisters


ice breaker
show us some more of your
sense of humor

from a handful of
insignificant bricks and cement
build us a house
a sculpted shape of
wits

splash us with the
coldness of your
indifference and then
horrify us
with our silly expectations

show us how we look
this time
coated with that sense of
pride
we are stripped of our
eastern sensitivities
on some learned so
called soft skills

shall we throw now the lotus
on the pond?
the frantic frog that fiends
sleep to catch the
unwary fly?

honestly try looking down
a bit
your fly is open.
