Couple In Their 50s - Poem by RIC S. BASTASA

in bed they
talk

about the matters of the day
about this guy
who is looking for a job and could not find any
these harsh times
when humanity is at its lowest
rating

about a young girl who runs away from home
who finally finds herself trafficked in Singapore
the slave trade seems to be prevailing


many trivial things
it is not about themselves
but other people
not even new ideas how to improve
their
marital performance

in bed after an hour or so
they sleep

the one who is minded
turns off the light at the headboard

it is so dark....

    not only couple in their fifties,
    all other couple do it rightly,
    talking about others all their life,
    forgetting to mend their fears and doubts.
