When She Says Goodbye - Poem by RIC BASTASA

when she says goodbye
waives her hand
and sort of cry some tears
like she will be missing
us all a lot,

try not looking at her
let her be
if you must
climb some stairs
or feed the chickens
or busy yourself with the pigs

let us see
if her goodbye is honest
if she does not have some crocodile tears
if she comes back
again on the same
ship taking her away
let us see
actually, i do not have any plan
welcoming her back
i have found
my life and she is not a part of it anymore
even a doorknob
or a button to my
shirt or a cuff link
her hands are never
