The Lady Who Leaned On The Pillar Of The Court - Poem by RIC S. BASTASA

the one who took the shot
must be an artist
he knew how to portray
the state of justice in this country
a sad lady
abandoned by a lover
who murders a maid
and goes into hiding
helped by a powerful dad
and the case is simply left
in the archives
forgotten

i have written a poem for
that sadness
a forced smile
coerced beauty
a leaning that is accompanied
by trembling
that something might fall and
break her into
shattered pieces of
glass
sharp and still vengeful to the
soles of the feet
of the innocent guest
looking for
more names....
