Welcome - Poem by RIC BASTASA

i will take you to
a succession of images,

my thoughts,
this family
all our
emotions passing through
the ancestral mind

during sleep
we will be the
objects seen
involuntary on this

the reverie.
an aspiration
do you still need
A trip to Europe
your wild
and vain fancy?

we summon
unreal beauty,
charm, we strive for

oh something
in a very remote way

I wouldn't dream of asking you
or them
to reconsider
things and options

what if?

i dream away the afternoon.
ideal? hmmm, not really

do not turn me off
i am real
touch my fingers
they wriggle

i sometimes
dream up
the most impossible

those with
unusual vividness,
and significance,

do not be turned
i am real
i am the one that rambles and
and mumble
and bubble up

like a gum on your cheek
