To Avoid An Explosion - Poem by RIC S. BASTASA

honestly
i do not write to impress
you
with what i have in mind
or what i am
to you or the
rest of those
who are reading
each word

i write because
i have to express myself

it is like a
pressure cooker
you know
trying to make the
hard meat
soft to my
eating
that steam being
let go
on those vents

simply to avoid
an explosion.
