Inside A Box Of Faith - Poem by RIC BASTASA

the whole day i am
inside this box,
shying away from the
outside light
and it will be the
same situation
throughout the night
but you will not ask me
i am not sick,
i am functioning well
and i can be
your normal lover
this box is my home
my shelter
i am hurt and i am
trusting no one
every face is deceptive
many acts are
i am thinking
it is more like it
inside this box
of measured walls
light leaks
and i drink it
i squat on its floor
my hands clasp
in silent prayer.
