Like The Ballet.... - Poem by RIC BASTASA

(for Bayoy R.)

and so as Darwin was not as
definite as his evolution what shape to take
what course of follow
Bayoy is caught is a disarray
whether to split or not
as she tiptoes in the house of
his father-in-law as all in-laws
look at her
frightened what to do for the rest of
this dramatic life

she finally says
with or without a home somewhere
i will take the kids with me
because living in the house
of suspicion
is just like learning the lessons
of ballet.
