A Sad Story About A Plight Of A Woman On The Other Side Of The World

he is talking to
a woman on the other side of
the world

a world that he cannot
feel
because he never saw
it
neither is the woman
since
she is on the other side
of the world
he was never there

he knows a lot
about her
he was told by so many
who tell him
that she lives with them
for a while

he hears everything about
those foul things about her
but he never smells them

can foul be foul when he only
hears it?
can a sense of smell be simply
heard?

while they were talking on the phone
she hints about how her lover
rejected her
about how her father abused her
how her mother abandoned
all of them
for another man

how their house was foreclosed
and how they have to move
to another place
again and again

how she had to sleep with other men
to make a living
etcetera etcetera

it was a long conversation
and it was then that he felt her
a madness not of her own causing
but of society as a whole

when she was finished
he nodded, for now
he understood.

  3198.     

a safe secret...

dear dead woman,

my eyes ache badly
today
but i must write
you this letter

i still have so many
things to tell you

and i could have told
you everything
when you were still alive

the moon is full tonight
and the wind is colder

i cannot rest and
i cannot sleep

i have many secrets to tell
you
and these are all safe now
since you are
dead.

your friend,
(name withheld)

p.s.
i still like to live.

  3199.     

a saying

and there was darkness
and let there be light?

he wept.

  3200.     

a saying....

to be somebody
he says
you must last, do not just fleet,
and fret and
when things get rough and
thorny
just hang in there
like a vine
on the iron grills
 
RIC S. BASTASA
