Supressed Love - Poem by RIC BASTASA

how you kept that flower
inside a closed jar
and still let it bloom
for 47 summers

how you kept
that kitten inside
a dark cage
for 47 summers
and let it meow
meow all those

you must be crazy
and so cruel
to yourself

how did you ever survive
without any breath

you choke all day
i am amazed
you did not even ever ask
for any help
