The Last Fifteen Minutes Before Leaving - Poem by RIC BASTASA

in fifteen minutes you create something
that they will like,
something to think about, not found here yet
it is about someone they want to understand but cannot
because it eludes belief
it escapes routine

it is outside the box, bird-like
wearing light,
and sounds very much just like anybody's
conscience always talking upon itself
and sound very much like
anybody's voice.
