we are straw mountains to sky.
we hardly escape a day’s light
but turn golden brown to rain.
we are straw people escalating
A diet cola, to obese laughter.
we are demos, for their cratos
our thumbs illiterate, fungible,
eligible for mutual exchange.
our body is all – time fungible
with no color to it like a rupee.
You may now indulge yourself
A bit of verse ,private universe
And look at your self in water.
Let words touch ears creating
Other worlds, newer semantics,
Joker mirrors to break oneself
In weird ,implausible splinters.
Rosencrantz -Guildenstern is dead.
Jointly dead or singly is not clear.
We hypenate them in their death.
Each is nobody without the other.
They would better be dead jointly.
Liability is both joint and several
In this stuff, says this yada yada
We do not have glasses to read.
Suffice to say liability is limited.
All stuff is Shakespearely limited
An idiot’s tale, a sound and fury.
We will now start learning to die,
By an unreal act of holding skulls
In conversations with our insides,
As rain falls softly on our nights.
By a deep drowning we negotiate
Our waters from a nobody’s earth,
A death fear at the bottom of love,
A tongue twister by illucid mind.
All skulls who have learnt to die
Must dispose of inter-cranial stuff.
On the hills the berries would appear,
Time for you kids to bleed your palms.
Berries were yesterday’s moon-flowers
Their milk spilling like soft moonlight
Lightly sour but fragrance to memory.
The sun may slip and fall off the edge
He who had filled all the purple pride.
Hurry to bleed pockets but not shins.
We must get used to a rhetoric
The plain- speak’s grey ashes.
The sky is at a hysterical high
With the stars softly weeping ,
Backyard’s jasmines fragrantly
Shouting their empty rhetoric.
Rhetoric is our poetry sowing
In this night’s barren wastes.
Please smell lightly and pass on.
Abject we are in this old corner
At bottom of economy’s dogpile.
Our stocks fear a passing wind
Like w.p.i. ,weekly nonfarm rolls.
Term deposits are fixed stares.
As we stare, eyes turn marble.
Principal turns shrinking skin
Interest a sneeze, abject nose.
