A Situationer... - Poem by RIC S. BASTASA

when he begins to write
the words
of course, he has in mind someone in particular
for it makes him
more particular too in the choice of
images, like

something so fragile like the last egg
in your hand

or something so beautiful like what you
are not

somethings need not be mentioned
and it will be

the moment you say what you have in mind
three dragon heads spring from your neck

so it is better to be cautious
like saying something that we do not like to say really

something like
how i wish to be like you

and you who hears it knows what is true
and you make a rebounding

yes, i like you too and then after the brief moment
sipping coffee and reading the news and looking at on striking passerby

you then part ways
clinching hug, cold kiss.
