Green Card

Kerala to Las Vegas, Nevada. Lagoons, to a dessert town. The slot machines making Calamitous clanging noises, Of falling bonanzas.

I made the clock go backwards Counter clockwise while making love. It was amazing how quick The orgasm came – in reverse And I didn’t need to do any kissing or foreplay. I was like a match stick that blazed And burnt in one flash. Like seeing God in an epiphany And my wife looked…

Fart

The smell of gases that a tiny hole throws Is caught by the nose A little aroma from your end-plumbing That other noses repulse And yours rejoice. There is nothing remotely musical As that little noise in your colon Caught in a colon-burp Accompanying a little heartbeat, a little drag of lungs And some finger…

Virginity – Recycling An Old Post

As a choice virgin till marriage, I do have my reflections and thoughts to share on this rather uneasy issue. My virginity was a subject of far-reaching debate in most parts of the world and even caused continental rifts between groups of individuals.
