Pretty women wonder where my secret lies.I’m not cute or built to suit a fashion model’s sizeBut when I start to tell them,They think I’m telling lies.I say,It’s in the reach of my armsThe span of my hips,The stride of my step,The curl of my lips.I’m a womanPhenomenally.Phenomenal woman,That’s me. I walk into a roomJust […]

Mother of all fears

I write entirely to find out what I’m thinking, what I’m looking at, what I see and what it means. What I want and what I fear. Analyzing what my worst fear is,I could give sophisticated answers like Google taking over the world or a simpler one like a sub-system attack from Dondalavan arc-nebula in […]

A Dog Has Died

My dog has died.I buried him in the gardennext to a rusted old machine.Some day I’ll join him right there,but now he’s gone with his shaggy coat,his bad manners and his cold nose,and I, the materialist, who never believedin any promised heaven in the skyfor any human being,I believe in a heaven I’ll never enter.Yes, […]

Serendipity

Its almost three years since I left my den facing the coconut jungle.Understandably the lady of the house who is possibly jobless at times,would have ranged through my cupboards and drawers,read through my old autograph books,commented on my grades in the second standard report card and would have tried in vain to make some sense […]

Gentleman Alone

The young maricones and the horny muchachas,The big fat widows delirious from insomnia,The young wives thirty hours’ pregnant,And the hoarse tomcats that cross my garden at night,Like a collar of palpitating sexual oystersSurround my solitary home,Enemies of my soul,Conspirators in pajamasWho exchange deep kisses for passwords.Radiant summer brings out the loversIn melancholy regiments,Fat and thin […]
