Scars

There was obsession, to wash your 

hands again and again. 

They swing wildly. 



The moods. 

Betel leaves, and bad grammar. 

Charity untainted. 



Divided walls. 

A street breaks the steps. 

Nails scratching the rosary. 



The stranded words, 

will not sit on the wide screen. 

The damp soil…

Evocative Images

A single line, 

undefined, hangs 

to make your life vulnerable. 



The drifting starts. 

You fumble for the right― 

text, 



to convey the urgency 

of a moratorium. The 

dew on the grass, 



was not ready to 

accept the rainbow of 

false promises. 



Flat refusal…

Whirling Dervish

In being and unbeing 

I come to you today― 

in unconscious state. 

Excessively leaning on 

cause, it is not heart― 

not brain. Just a beat. 

Evening is settling 

down. Time flew past. Birds 

going home. A lone moon 

will rise. 

Underground thoughts start― 

stunning the secrets. 

You…

What Grammer

The tremors. One day 

I would know. The trees are walking. 

No miracle. We are― 

becoming rootless. 



The fear, was palpable. 

Nowhere to go. All the roads 

were blocked. The king 

is being anointed after the bloodbath. 



No logical lie was needed 

for targeted killing. 

Why did you start…

Far And Wide

The night poem 

crucial 

was the breast-feed 

the train whistles by 



the thugs squirm 

no waylaiding now 

in the dark hour 

till the moon rises 



the drag queens 

are out to collect 

the marbles 

would you play the chess?

To Know What We Do Not Know

Though inaudible, I will 

hear you― clear and distinct, 

offering to be understood. 

Destigmatizing the ghost of truth 

and be accepted. 



The noises still persist 

of the parables. Who was the 

king without a crown? 



Accepting nihilism, I will 

ask my inner voice, will 

you meet the…

Melting Nowhere

Everything was in place, 

and I started to find― 

the kingpin, door by door. 



Wanted to know more about the death, 

when you were struck in silence― 

of blackness. 



Displaying the art of kill. It has 

an ancient throw of fangs. 

I am ready to catch the blues. 



All day the hibiscus has 

been bleeding. I…

Lynching

Eclectically, do not say anything; 

put a bullet in your head 

and go to sleep. 



I know what was coming 

after the ballot. A heap of 

abuses, for not maintaining the war. 



The presence you can feel, 

I am the native of this land― when 

hurricane comes, you untie the shoes. 



May be, wearing a dark…

Distant Dangers

Aquilla. Would you 

carry the burden 

of ungiving? 



Transmuted, I 

will find you in portrait 

of sublime? 



And I will see in your eyes 

a cosmos, floating in void. 



But a primal question 

remained unanswered, who were you. 



Through the blue sky 

and legends of dark,…

Do Not Wear The Dreams

You were different from 

others, away from home and hypocrisy, 

unlistening to the fiat 

of karma. 



There should not be 

any put-on face. Hibiscus will tell the truth. 



Sanguine. I will again 

invoke the bride of moon. 

Time to go for a simile. 



Eros tips. I educate 

the limbs, not to…

Dilemma Of Ink

The ostrich problem 

of catalepsy. 

You go into a cocooned 

opacity. 



I will wait, till you 

come out, ready to take a flight 

for an oath ceremony. 



The land suffers, 

the sky weeps. 



The shotguns would now decide 

the boundaries of speech. 



I will walk into…

Living Perilously

You will remember― 

what I would not― the 

inner darkness of noon. 



A bright sun goes 

blind for a caged bird. To 

dream or not to dream in 

the path of unknown. 



Any celestial movement― 

will bring the halcyon days? 

One day the man will change? 



This culture, your 

ethos were making…

Wolverines

Night blinks. 
Light sits under the door. 
I am ready to confront the moon. 

Too much brilliance 
was there. Would you redesign 
the blue sky and paint the new stars? 

Poverty was my great strength. 
Nothing to lose, when 
you were dancing with the shadows.

Dismantled

Trembling… 

the burning coal has gone to sleep, 

before igniting the dry grass. 



Eye to eye colliding 

turning you into ophelian mess. 

Light had gone back to black matter. 



It was a frisk season― 

in sick society. The hidden plaques 

have come out in the blood stream. 



You are now backtracking 

on the…

Infinitude

Be what you are. 

As night falls, 

I start moon spotting 

standing starkly against the pain. 



Reaching for you 

from you, in― 

moonless night. 



The relationship of 

dream blood, was never 

seen but heard. 



The pursuit of location 

where the eclipse descends like a…

Never Wanting

The weight of the ideology 

flattens your upheaved chest. 

You speak, what you did not want to say. 



A fake hunger and pseudo-demands, 

put you on the pathless clouds. 

How would you now fly towards the sun? 



The polarization was deliberate, 

to usurp the authority. Blue jays 

have refused to join gangs. 



A faded…

The Accidental Fall

My bronzed speech is available, 

accepting the defeat of daffodils. 

I will not write an elegy. 



The postpartum blues are over, 

I am coming out of the crib, 

like a new born poem. 



Floating the paper lanterns, at 

night, on flowing river, to send the 

message to moon. No more the beach will cry. 



The triangular nuts…

Ecce Homo

When silence stays alone 

in the hollow of the eyes, 

would you come? 

In the audacity of 

beauty and pain, when 

the moon does not rise. 

Like beggars the clouds 

roam, parting the 

sky for a glimpse of a vision. 

We will speak like 

strangers not looking into the eyes. 

Not quite…

Vengeance

Arithmetic becomes poetry, 

when you start counting the stars in Milky Way. 



Light will cross 

your path. Your own sun 

becomes a logic. 



You step into a holy bath 

to collect all the scripts 

of the dark circles. 



Where the infinity starts, 

you become the center? 

of all the…
