Academic Life - Poem by RIC S. BASTASA

one sometimes fear
leaving an academic life
seeing the world
through a thick reading eyeglass
sleeping with books
surfing on the net
writing treatises and
too legalese
side tripping with literature
and floating with
poems on wild imaginations
on the clouds of puff
and huff

one fears that after
sleeping with books
night after night
dating with the lampshade
one finally loses what is more
than these prints and

when finally she is gone
dating real people that she can touch
and feel.
