And That Is The Excitement For All Your Years To Come.
the body is a prisoner
by RIC BASTASA
the mouth cannot speak inside those
it is hard to understand
no one wants to speak about this matter
when everyone is maimed and mum
the soul begins to sing
more beautiful than what the lips
more truthful than the body which
the songs of the soul are clear
on those nights
in harmony with the coconut leaves
making love with the breeze
what is the face of this soul?
you have not seen it yet.
and that is the excitement
for all your years to come.
