Simple Things - Poem by RIC BASTASA

simple things are the simple thoughts to a

simple man
like me

simple things like a coin where there is no face of me
or you
but it can buy me something to shame me of my
poverty and helplessness

a simple yawn
i haven't really slept
to the minimum that my eyes need

and look at these eyes
they are sinking to my sockets

a simple
word is all i need and i will always repeat it



this is the simple man, let there be no complications
or ethics

i am a simple man and morality is too hard for me to understand

all i ask is that you must

love me.
