Adolfo Caso Shares His "New Year's Eve!"






Midnight
has struck an instant
un-recordable.
Past and future
                                meet
like the tinkle of two,
three glasses of champagne
 about to disappear
before smiling lips and eager eyes.
Embraces
caresses
kisses
assuage the pain
that disappears
into resolutions
of short-lived moments of joy.

Shouts
                 cries
desperation
                         tears
resound uncontrolled
beneath the lights
that flicker
through the eternal prism.
An instant
                                       un-recordable

creates
                          the jungle
of inception and of death--
rivers of emotions overflowing
all
ending and beginning
at one time.
New Year's Eve:
a tinkling of glasses,
a kiss prolonged,
one lifetime,
one moment
                                 that was
and never will be.
