The Impeccable... - Poem by RIC BASTASA

each word is well chosen
it has a history and significance
each syllable is important
to build the empire
of his poem,

majestic now
people keep on reading
amazed and
by the impeccable,

and yet for how long will this majesty

only for once,
and then the reading is over
and no one talks about
the word, and the syllable is not even uttered

only for once and then
gone forever.
