The Point That You Are Driving At - Poem by RIC BASTASA

of all inanimate
you say you want to be a fruit
a mango
luscious, sweet, and
ripe

i know, your point is that
you are ready,
ripe for everything, an end
for itself,

and of all animate,
you say you simply want to be this
mosquito
of the female variety, one that sings
one that tells you

that life sucks
