Something Real - Poem by RIC BASTASA

along the street on a sunny day
we met
we have not spoken for years
perhaps affected by a family feud
but then this time
you stop your car
open the window
and greet me
i am surprised to see you back
from the States
for years
and you ask me how am i doing
all these years
and what are my plans
in such a short span
and then she says she is not leaving
she will be working here
and will be building a new house
for herself

and then she says
so long see yah

she closes the car window and
speeds her way out of town

i know what she is up to
her car is expensive and brand new
the latest model
the only one in town

a show off i think
to make me envious

but i will give her the benefit of the doubt
so long and i will still
see yah
