RIC BASTASA


The Thing In Itself - Poem by RIC BASTASA

a white chicken
egg
on top of porcelain
saucer
beside
a silver spoon

the mahogany table is
one legged
with a big
round base keeping it
balanced
amidst this elliptical space

up the ceiling
is a round 220 bulb
lending light
to the room

the white egg stands
like a zero
above a underline

we let our gaze
stroll at the bridge
of our nose

we listen
how these things in themselves
relate to us
without words.
