Fear - Poem by RIC S. BASTASA

there is this fear
about how things move past us

a chick turning into a chicken
it lays an egg
and more eggs and hatch into chicks
in a moment

you sit there unmoved
left out like a stone on a river bed that went dry
last summer

come spring
the tight buds burst into flowers
you sit there unmoved left out like a rusty gate diminishing
its body on the seashore.
