The Dog, The Fence And The Search For Meaning - Poem by RIC S. BASTASA

this is a room
of ideas
a free country
let the words come
as they come
i am not choosy

' i did not come
to please everyone'

you said it.




'no one likes you'

'how dare you? '


we trek upon a snake
path

leading to the summit
of Mt. Diwalwal

(it means drool
tongue is out
looking for an
adventure

or meaning

what it means to look
for meaning?)


there is a hungry dog
waiting outside the gate
which you have closed
like a broken heart

the dog is angry
and anyone who comes out
shall be bitten
bitterly

if you kill it
it offers you the comfort of
its chosen silence.
