Under The Acacia Tree - Poem by RIC S. BASTASA

that afternoon under the acacia tree
the irony of life confronts them

she is beautiful, a single mom
with a chinese lover
she's lonely and does not speak much

he is married and his wife cannot bear him a child
he weaves a conversation
words allure him more
he appears happy and sometimes he sings
the sound of the whistle delights him
in the bathroom

the night came
they kiss and then they part ways
looking for their home
