Brains...
surped
on the half-shell
I've dined 'pon many
savoring few
most grey matter wastes away
lost in the din

I saw her sitting in
The water naked
And looking at me
With sexual hunger
Deep inside her
Voloptuous eyes.

you crowned me
the carpet burned tsarina
of a rubble pile
& by right, i
exhumed your bones
from zamarstynˇw

you should never judge others
by the clothes they wear
or the smile on their face
they can be facades

we dreamt cold,
crumbling walls at our backs,
a night without demons in the dark.
i've never slept comfortably since

since then I've tried to
move forward
one tyre bogged down
I run in circles
until I'm out of fuel

traces of the headwaters
soaked the hem of
acres of purple silk,
bare feet & bells
planted in the silt

silt and sediment drift
feel the grit on my shins
it tickles the scar tissue
easing away the aches

i remember your face amid the crush of bodies,
the scent of cardamom & mace;
a minaret in the chaos

chaos is that moment
the scent of your
sweat salted skin
erupts and my brain
loses control
I stammer hello

you strewed the ashes of my jewish soul
across the stairs of manikarnika

the promises of the ancient
hope is the anchor of the soul
to return once again
to revive Eden

child-like
we prayed to the pastel walls
of any god who would hear us.
then we grew up
& apart.

we broke apart because of insecurity
but he didn't believe that
he thought it was insincerity
explaining was useless
so ...the end

poet Anonymous

my voice a tinny echo
in the ostentation,
i dipped my fingers into the font
& walked into the sunlight
