A Child's Game - Poem by RIC S. BASTASA

the games that you play
are the same games that i am playing

writing poems
watching movies
reading stories
reading poems
taking the night
out with not so
close friends
enjoying the
music at the bar
some beer and
some barbecue
a little laughter
some pretenses
some truths to
tell sometimes
going home late
and wanting some
sleep till noon,

what is it that i am doing?
i am hiding from misery
this program on pain reduction
this art of losing and finding
and losing till it hurts no more

these children games
of hide and seek
breaking up and
becoming friends again
in such a short
