[The Floating Poem, Unnumbered]

Whatever happens with us, your body
will haunt mine - tender, delicate
your lovemaking, like the half-curled frond
of the fiddlehead fern in forests
just washed by sun. Your traveled, generous thighs
between which my whole face has come and come -
the innocence and wisdom of the place my tongue has found there -
the live, insatiate dance of your nipples in my mouth -
your touch on me, firm, protective, searching
me out, your strong tongue and slender fingers
reaching where I had been waiting years for you
in my rose-wet cave - whatever happens, this is.

-- Adreinna Rich

You're not allowed to
kiss me now
I just finished
convincing myself
you have to leave

Not even love

I will give up anything to win your love
but if you say no
I will accept and walk away filled with
the sweetness of your denial

-- Rumi

You are making me give up on you
I know I have to 
but I'm not going to let you

-- Chotu

Let the lover be disgraceful, crazy, absentminded.
Someone sober will worry about things going badly.
Let the lover be.

-- Rumi

Hidden Transcripts

Who among us has not had a similar experience? Who, having been insulted or suffered an indignity - especially in public - at the hand of someone in power or authority over us, has not rehearsed an imaginary speech he wishes he had given or intend to give at the next opportunity?

At midnight
when a certain city forest goes wild

breathe in the waves of the storm
turn them around the grove

blush a little smile
and tell your sea crush:

the insanity of the night
is like our whirling drunk kiss

Float Float O Fool!

Sometimes you should allow your self to stupidly drown in your sea crush :)

She said:

We have sexual needs too. We can't keep waiting for some superman to come and fuck us.

Tell me why?

Tell me why? I saw this book in my friends' houses when we were young. We didn't have a copy in our house. We didn't have the hard bound collection of encyclopedias either. Every time I saw the relics showcased in dusty wooden cupboards, I wondered if anyone ever read them. They were so brown and bulky. Tell me why? used to have a happier white cover, I think.

Tell me. Why? Asking questions. Answering questions. Sometimes I get annoyed when grown up force little kids into answering their questions. Everyone on a KBC trip. No patience for options. 
A little 3 year old boy I know, recently answered some of the questions like this:

Q. Which city do you live in?
A. Honda City

Q. Who is Manmohan Singh?
A. A sardar

Q. What is your mother's name?
A. Bhabiji

Q. Why didn't you bring roti and sabji to school?
A. Our gas got over
