It Was Nothing.... - Poem by RIC S. BASTASA

orally fixated said he
to the two handsome men aboard that boat
going to an island
where paradise is rumored

on the other side
is a young man and a young woman
too in love
they were holding hands
throughout the trip
her head resting on his

the sound of the boat is insistent
slashing the sea
into a slit of foam and bubble

i was alone, spying on every human aspect
of the trip
to that rumored paradise

they all look at me
thinking that i must be weird or cruel
not having with me anyone

i do not mind
i am on this curious trip to that rumored paradise
spying on every one who is on that boat
i am the spectator
taking notes inside my mind

humanity is mixed nuts
and i am enjoying it
now orally fixated on every one
aboard that boat that shall take us to that rumored paradise

when we arrive there
it was nothing.
