I Learned A Lot From You Today - Poem by RIC S. BASTASA

first, i like the way you say hello
and your concern when sometimes
i get disconnected
the way you insist that we still have
many things to talk about
not just love
but politics and perhaps
religion

second, i like the way we embrace
clean fun now,
nothing about sex (though i honestly
miss it, and perhaps you too
but we take a break from this
monotony)

and i even recommend that we talk
about philosophy or
poetry
you say you only like to read them
when you are lonely
but not when you are hot
and... gee

third, i like it when you leave me
without saying goodbye
i know this thing called love
between us
shall not end... it 's like a comma
looking for
the exclamation point

fourth, i like it here when i am alone again
i learn to think some more
what to do with my life
when you might be gone.
