I Do Not Wish To Understand You - Poem by RIC S. BASTASA

to understand you is to put you under the control of my mind
tie you there and with a scalpel layer by layer i will peel you
peek upon the secret nooks of every muscle and
take you into pieces as bones and ligaments

i can imagine the pain
it is not mine of course but

on this thinking i have become grossly unfair
and so i leave you in the middle of your mess

i guess i must trust you
i know you can manage

our friendship and trust shall take charge
everything shall work and shall make the best of what you are

left alone to heal the wounds
to grow those scars

Poet's Notes about The Poem

i resist thinking about understanding you
or the rest of the members of this circle of friends
(and secret foes)
