The Deterioration Of The Word Hello - Poem by RIC BASTASA

the indifferent man on the other side
of the cyber line
perhaps has misunderstood my
as a mode of great concern
thinking that i must be a man without means
with ignoble intentions
for his silence

hmmm, hellos are cliches
sometimes you say it
just to check if people are still there
more of
hey i am not alone in this silence
there are too many of us
to be ignored
by that usual indifference
that feeling that everybody is gone
deep to the caves of
and that this world is numb
and foolish
hello if he knows somehow
is of the lesser kind
inferior to
good morning i am here
bastardized abused
word that for a time
exists on a faded meaning
in fact
demoted deteriorated to
no meaning at all
