Treasure Island

RIC S. BASTASA


a proposal


i guess there is something
better to do,
let us go inside the room
close the window
i have an empty glass
you too have it
i have wine, aged and mellow,
let me pour it to your empty glass
then we make a toast
let me drink from your wine glass
as you drink from mine
in this room
we are alone
sleep is such a waste of time
as time runs
berserk upon its own feet
and we gain
nothing but its wrinkles and
forgetfulness

it is nice to get drunk
now
we do things we are spontaneous
we may imagine other faces
previous events
those that we can never forget with someone else
let me be just a movie to you
as you are to me

the following morning
do not say a word
we both do not need it
we part
and parting must be
as beautiful as we met.
