RIC S. BASTASA


A diamond


Two sides of
the earth
two faces: romantic
darkness
and abundant light

one face for
all mankind
one face for
myself alone

two sides of a coin
four sides of a square

you demand that
i shall have only
one,

i'll say yes
in such a simple word

inside my heart
the words rumble
too many
to capture but only
one face?

in silence
i keep my fingers crossed
it is impossible

to one light
i glitter a thousand
times

And said, “I can summon a million of men
To fight for their country and Kaiser;
