Chicago

There’s a 1993 film called “Come or Go Chicago” A frivolous comedy starring a comedian Freddy Silva. I can’t help but wonder what that saying means, Chicago, the birth place of the skyscraper The throngs of Nobel Prize winners, A university that demands respect, And the place of the doomsday clock. Evidence that life comes…

Sadness

The underside of happiness, Like a floored piece of bread, Carries little microscopic microbes, With strong pedigree, And an endurance that grows, Just like on an agar plate with nutrients, Until there is a watershed moment, A paradigm shift, a miracle, How a little ant becomes A butterfly, and the bread Crumb, becomes nectar. The…

What if Making Love was like a Game of Chess.

What if making earth-shattering love, Was like a game of strategic chess.    You will become soft waves, Of domination and submission,   The knight saddling, the bishop diagonally holy, The queen going here and there,   Sacrificing herself like a pawn, The gambit of her slender lustful body.   And what else, but two…

Retirement

## The Dog, The Dawg. The dog breeds men are. Those who go from doing doggy business, Styling as done in the doggy manual, Always letting the dog out loose. Now lazing on an armchair, Newspaper in his trusted palms, Reading today’s news. He reads how the Political dogs are going on, Doing doggy business,…

A Poet During Night And Day

I stumble my way now, In my sabbatical away from work. A man, whose daylight hours Are spent under a roof. And the sun, Helios, I see him outside, Still not summoning me. If I was white, I would be seated On a beach chair, getting a suntan. The sun it smiles people say, The…

Refugees to Canada

A Japanese Valentine’s Day Poem (Erotica)

  Sequoia and bamboo, on the ends of the earth. And I’d settle for the girth of redwood, And the brown-yellow skin of a tall grass   And I’m all six foot four inches A man, who towers over his woman, And only, when we make love,   Am I, dwarfing below her. Firing away…

Kissing and Praying is what Republicans do

What sticks to you like spandex, Are your set ways as a republican; like saying A silent prayer doing 100 miles per hour,  On the freeway, or kissing my wife Just for the sole reason she is there Right in front of you. You are a republican, The kind some people love to hate, and…

Nirvana

A dog chasing his tail, Going round and round Maddened by the very thing That wags, when given a bone. And just like the wheel of samsara, Is the dog chasing his furry and stumpy tail, Revolutions of extant life, to meet The tail end of the universe, The other end, Playing a silly game,…
