I Leave For Another Place..... - Poem by RIC S. BASTASA

Up in the sky
gold fish are swimming
looking like

down under the white herons
are pecking upon
humpback whales

there is something wrong
really wrong i know

and i ask you and you just
it is funny
but you ask no question
as it happens that way

this is art, you keep telling me
everything is possible

and beautiful, but i do mind

i still live there
black dogs eating grass
and cows grinning with
knuckle bones
inside their mouths

i like to change this world
beauty is not like this
it is something else
it is the orderly arrangement
of nature
from big to small

there are numbers to follow
memories to put in writing
in cards and waiting

for more to count
there is a figure in sorrow
squares and triangles

but it is the melting that is real
you keep on saying and it is indeed funny
and real too

i left, and draw a world
where windows are windows where spades are called
spades because

they are.

No games now. No games now.
This is real.I am counting reality as real.

for now i walk alone in peace.
Hope is a giant jellyfish breathing
under the sea.
