Forced Tragedy

You loosen the grip 

and let go the bank. 

After throwing itself on the 

burning pyre, the phoenix 

has failed. It will― 

not rise from the ashes. 

An agonizing script 

unfolds. In a visceral moment, 

I was scared. Life, till natural death. 

What do I do now? Words 

do not help. Stop doing anything? 

A…

Black Days

It was a marathon race of 

timeline. The days are bound and shot. 

How do I come to you to express 

my grief of the country 

in tumult! 



In shouting and screaming, 

there was no magic wand to invoke 

peace. Your mouth opens 

and shuts like the shell valves. The 

scollops― words, swim in 

sea of…

Fading Sheen

My little dirty moon, 

why were you hiding― 

when the vulture-poems had 

an uncanny similarity with 

raging road show? 



The volatility would not exit. 

It rises in flames to make 

a big black hole in the sky. 

Sometimes I hate you, 

sometimes I, love you, 

my elusive, beautiful karma. 



At…

Heartache

Wanting to die young 

hairy and unbaked, 

not telling the truth. 

It was a savage vendetta. 

The crowd was not on your side. 

In manic intensity, 

they shouted― death to the veils 

in holiest dip. 

I repudiate the presumptiveness. 

A super religion gives birth 

to a devil― another godman. 

In chains, I…

Amused

Night falls in rings. 
The poetry becomes 
a summer dilemma. 

A dancing frog 
starts foot-flagging. 
Mating was the ultimate. 

Politics becomes 
a ritual. I will not come back 
to face the lynch mob.

The Enigma

The traveler sleeps in a sepulcher, 

endlessly, timelessly, 

where no ray of light enters. 

Like the death has stopped 

moving, for a moment 

to celebrate the close of the journey. 



Indeed? Is it the edge of yearning? 

I no longer belong to any one, 

to any universe. Come a long way 

walking barefoot on hot…

In Harmony

A sudden shock, 

when a snakeskin starts moving. 

Behind the shut doors 

a conspiracy was hatched. 

Son of the moon― 

wriggles on palms. Sneaks 

a glance at the diving sun. 

Cut and glued, a mourning looks 

in the eyes of a Titan. 

The anarchy raises its head. 

The make-up cannot be 

taken off. It will…

Difficult To Understand

To connect with a reclusive mind, 

was an uphill task. 

You become― 

vunerable again. 



Everyday the curtains 

come down after the entry of 

assassin bugs. 



Long-legged, bloodsucking 

predators would roam 

and abduct the phrases. 



The young turks break 

the nest, petals strewn,…

Quizzing

The great lines, you quote, don't 

stir me... you know my vexation, 

with the twinkling lights, that don't move. 

The colors, don't mix... I move 

from death to death, to understand 

life, and fail miserably. The body 

does not open. Seducers 

ready to jump for a bite, to tear 

off my columns, my domes. 



Yes, I give, give away my…

Discovery

As I accept the verdict, 

the dead-soul beast― 

jumps up, draws out the sword 

and starts cutting the drift. You shout, 

wake up from a nightmare. 



The words had betrayed. Vowel 

harmony was gone. Voice hoarse, you 

stammer, accusing the city, the country 

the century. 



It was consensual. The suicide…

Unburned Houses

Once you are labeled, 

The human input is out and 

you start falling apart. 



My home, and I am trying 

to set the walls free after― 

the explosion. 



A sinkhole eats you alive. 

I am walking in air 

contending with the old god 

who would not listen. 



Suddenly it is time to 

back drive.…

Buoyancy

I punish myself daily 

to deny a god. 

Do angels cry? 

Pinning hope in a crisis to extract 

the truth from a dying moon? 

A ghost walks on the 

wall to enter the alphabets 

of living deads. 

Ambrosia― was not 

sufficient to resuscitate 

a bleeding cross. 

I am charting my life 

for you…

The Great Divide

Cut the masks 

and you will find a river of sorrow 

in the unblinking eyes. 



The mud tears had smeared 

the face. 



Chimera? The fire breathing 

will start a new traction to break 

the silent protest of lying lambs. 



Impertinence? 

For whom you have come to 

offer the chador at the…

After The Chemo

You said this summer, 

hold me tight, 

when hanging lights― 

go out. 



I will heal your moon, 

your cryptobiosis 

of seeds― 



at dawn, when you wake up 

before the stars leave. 



It would not be a day of mourning. 



The quinces, japonica 

irises were deeply…

Eyes Like Flints

A streak of sin, 

just as culpable, 

gives back my pains. 

A half-finished poem 

jolts me out of my vision. 

Someone drops the moon― 

and becomes evident in mist. 

A profile floats. I 

imagine the spreading smile. 

I want to understand myself. 

The colors blend. Have 

you read Rilke? You will…

Something Different

Transcribing my emptiness, 

like emulating an ape― 

to study the anatomy― 

of a scar. 



There was a brutal assult. 

Uninterpretable was the ink, 

like the blood spilled 

after the vein collapsed. 



An egg within an egg 

would change the gender 

of a name. A different money 

was needed to…

Vox Humana

The family pride 

goes for the jugular. The rotational 

push, dooms the vessel. I 

come out in black waters. Night 

is pitch-dark. 



Riding the tiger, now you 

want to come down. There was 

no anonymous call to 

remember the wits. A buried 

myth is ready to romance. 



My country bleeds in…

Retroaction

Celebrating the summer. 

Planting a wet kiss on― 

the hiding moon. 

Dousing the flames, 

you come in crosshairs 

of a mob. 

You will light 

your own candle now, in― 

pitch-dark inside. 

Impoverished. Always 

poor to buy your happiness. 

Like Paleolithic stab, you stay 

unmoved, exposed…

Accepting Defeat

Where was the empirical 

evidence, that you don't exist? 

The vibes were becoming 

stronger. 



The comb has fallen, and 

honeybee feels lése-majeste'. 

Where the dots end, a 

new line starts. 



Adrift. The resistance is gone. 

Reflecting on the added 

infidelity. You cannot pay homage 

to…
