The Metamorphosis Of F. Kafka - Poem by RIC S. BASTASA

one day
he finds himself converted into
a giant cockroach
he does not know about it at first
until he wakes up
and looks at himself in the mirror

he changes his taste for food
now attracted to left overs
dislikes water and
light
dislikes people and
events
and cannot relate to the morning
news on TV

his door has now remained closed
and no one is allowed to enter
except his dear sister
who feeds him
morsels

in time he begins to understand
how is it to be a cockroach
how humans have been too cruel
to their state

and then
he writes about Kafka and
The Metamorphosis

that is the real story
until the cockroach dies
until Kafka recovers again
away from
Ward 10.
