Treasure Island

RIC S. BASTASA


You on top of me.


Despite my
varied escapades

despite the numbers
in my mind

the nights and
dawns

the drinks and
the see through glasses

the mirrors and
shadows

i keep telling myself
i have so many things
to do

but to forget you
and not miss you

is still not possible
i need time

more time more
time

to make you
fade

what a night
on such a short hour

i never regret
though that once

i had you
on top of me.

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
