sculptured time, muddled glance

time escapes
as the bud blooms
the stolen fragrance unwraps
from fleeing time
clinging to your glance
in mid flight
cold and shivering
time falls frozen
slivers of it flying
as mind chisels
sculpturing your
timeless eyes
fragrance mates the glance
watching virgin bats
lose their sight
flaps the fragrance
to hells gate
free at last
the glance seeks mine
hidden somewhere

long time back

last night

stormy night
hunger howls
a wolf yearning
scalded by moon light
the beast prowls
stinky bars
icy winds bite
n’ chew random thoughts
a whore screams
locusts descend
cleaning the flesh
off bones of pretty men
the snake uncoils
freeing the bound silence
a ransom sought
none paid
something killed
something raped
something buried

something freed

uncle Gopi

watlzs away
with him firmly
in her arms
music lingers
as thoughts play
on the keyboard
of sweet memories
the heavy vacuum
of loss
hangs as dark
as monsoon clouds
while his smile
would be a rainbow

lighting up
someplace else
as he meets
his friend


long lost

speeding down
screaming tracks
damp dark tunnels
of restless mind
frothing bubbles
trapped under
clear thin ice
of brittle memories
on toothpicks
with cheese cubes
with wine
sticky dew drops
on webs of thought
hanging on a noose
courting death
dead and limp
pickled in spirit
that touch
without feel
i look in the mirror
find no image

at the street garbage bin

i saw fireflies
dance deep inside
her eyes
i heard wolves
growl with hunger
in her little tummy
as she tore
a piece of smelly god
salvaged from the bin
to feed
the lame dog
