Expat Escape... - Poem by RIC S. BASTASA

when you post a love poem
or another picture of yours in intimate embrace
with another man
in another scene
when you think that it is a wise choice
to be happy and not mind
what is happening in the other side of the world
when you post another selfie with your
Cheshire cat smile
inspired by that Alice in Wonderland
i must confess i am deeply saddened
by that choice
i guess, i must have been just hypocritical
in this morning haze
but just the same i wish you all the love
and the grace
i wish you are happy with all your hopes
for that final escape
towards an exit away from us
i wish you are gone for good
we are mourning here and you do not fit.
