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,…

10 Commandments

Like Moses I stand, The 10 commandments in my hand, And the world of Big Brother Hating me, as much as a liberal Hates Donald Trump. Jesus was hated, so was Donald. So am I, for being a Jesus surrogate, The vile eyes of evil, The serpent, showing me the apple, And my teeth biting…

Criteria of Love

Love, who doesn’t know it, And yet who doesn’t get into a knot by it. The polite enquiry is just a bomb, It detonates inside a closed room called the soul. And you fall with parachutes in your heart, Until you’re where you want to be, In orbiting gold rings. Until that point, You’re just…

Einstein and Trump

Two men, who were both defined by their hair, A wacky mental spike or a loose comb-over. They both had a soft spot for Jerusalem.  One was asked to become The president of Israel, and the other Became bosom friend, to this land, Where once Jesus roamed. And still, they both will embellish history. The…

Donald Trump – An Elegy and Ode

### The real mess America is, And the great white hope as he is called, Bigger than Moby Dick, And a donkeying captain Ahab, With harpoons in his palms, chasing him, In an ocean, called the Great America, Where all sorts of bioluminescent creatures live, Divided by their faith of Moby Dick, Or the absence….

Symbioses

## A lichen has a cyanobiont And a mycobiont, a blue-green alga and a fungus Grappling rocky earth or the end of a decaying log.   My wife and I, we too are like that. Two halves, one more stronger than the other, Photosynthesizing in her own space and time And the other, an obese…

Sadness Explored

My forensic eye, sees white pebbles Inside a bowl in the middle of the round table In our dining room. They glimmer faintly,  Their disclosure, sculpting a little sunny face, My stretched lips, hiding the somber Times, waking up to a gentle day, Into the gregarious wind and the rustling coconut leaves As I shake…

Kith and Kin

  A flower, a loved one, Who wilts right in front of your eyes, And blossoms flaws on skin Only to one day become, One with the residue of what doesn’t become gas, But stays horizontal beneath earth. Where new floral arrangements Are placed every year, on the same date, Next to an epitaph, that…

Interfaces

Look how beautiful It is, when palm supports palm, And fingers caress fingers.  How straight are those palms in togetherness. And those assemblies of palms, like lovers, Slip and glide on each other At the dead heat of the night Opposite a lighted candle thread, In interfaces which form and denature Every passing day, almost…
