Lakshmi Iyer

India

night out

with the darkness

I imagine

myself to be a shadow

sleeping under the blanket

 

strings of kite

flying crisscross

entangled

in them are the knots

of our routines

 

 

all the time

I thought

I'm the best

what about the nature

carving out her jungle

 

 

trying

to water the plants

I seep

in the thought

of that origin of the seed

 

 

living

and loving

what I like the best

those moments of ecstasy

of my first born

 

zipped

in the fear of a lie

I make an attempt

to be clear cut

in what I do
