RIC S. BASTASA


the lonely room


to give me company
i look for a friendly word
because there is no one
somehow
available here
someone
even to be present
with not
even talk

i choose a vowel
something that can give me a sound
to put a little
presence in this room

the O comes
then the Y
and then
U, which i try to spell
as You
but then i have already forgotten
how you sound to me

it's been years
and my memory has failed me
and then
i had nothing but
Me

it is enough
i am at home now with all the consonants
in this
room which has already forgotten
the joys of
sound

Tell me not (Sweet) I am unkind,
That from the nunnery
Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.
