RIC S. BASTASA


back to the words....


the words have
become mute and
to express what they
have inside their letters
they now ask the
visuals to help them.

like words however
the visuals do not speak.
They just show.

a poem makes a sound.
exudes an aura
spreads a scent
foremost it makes
you dance even
if there is no audible
music from the
radio
it makes you see
even it what it is
uttering is just the
blankness of
a wall.

it is then not the visual
or the word
it is what is not seen
and what is not uttered.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
