Some Notes About You - Poem by RIC BASTASA

reading what you have
written
excites me.

I salute your
sweetness in
being candid to every word.

reading one poem leads to
another
until i get to know you
every hair lock
every nail
bite.

and then i experience
not just the
high of your thoughts
but the
fear too, that i can be soon like
you

lost, sad, and in pain.

and so today i call it quits.

after reading you
it feels like visiting Beijing
and then
promising myself that
i shall not return
to such place
again.

there is this exhaustion,
that rises above
the respect for what is old and
miserable.
