Living Upon The Expectations Of Morality (2) - Poem by RIC BASTASA

i can live on a mirage
i can just be a fume floating on a desert sand

in our union i wear a different covering
i am more attractive there and you want me to be in that shape forever

all the rest there are smiling and i tried to have one too
you love me but i have never ever told you that i love another

the years are burdens but i take all those passions
i am a strong man and i carry this weight

it is absurd it is an irregular shape and i am having a hard time
locating the center of gravity of my being

this is what is unhappiness all about
i keep on saying i am strong

i write a letter to a friend and i draw a cat without a mouth
i understand but i am doing nothing

the cat knows the pleasure of its paw and its tail
but it has kept its mouth shut
