Seven New Poems

April 14, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 123


What is there to relish in heaven if the vulgarity of relationship haunts even after retiring from earth?

The loose threads of yearning criss cross memory I can still feel the river's twisted flow toward lower reaches, exhausted and stripteased.

The nudity of moon and stars is beyond touch who cares I evolve or end like them suspended from a plane I can hardly reach?


How does it matter I remember or forget the nights or lights that stand still

in the dense fog noting visible nor audible

the thundering panes touch the ground:

it's all game of guess and vague everyone

everything even the tick of the clock

this freezing hour redolent of crumbling echoes

I can't divine vision or loom up certainty to mock follies of dying sun


Unmoved in the wind the rose still stands erect

in the night's silence I imagine my teens

the street is lonely and love-ache ever fresh

with stolen fragrance now halting rhythm of sex


Away from home in academicssex, philosophy and religion I've been skeptic about all these years revels of hell in lost memories

couldn't be a new dialect in my mind with fire but no heat or light, sterile emotion routs the spirit to live making all presences dark and absence

fears are no bread from heaven nor unfilled emptiness any sky

yet the eagle flies with wide eyes nose opened to stinking patches the mud- and ghost-scapes that yield mandate for dreams wrapped in nightmares:

I live preying for liberation and decay with divinity


Seated by fireside a crying child wards off flies on her tear-stained face:

both hungry in a rich house the master picks stars in her hair

who cares how this sullen place turns golden with mask over a poor woman's face:

the bull performs the act and flees hiding blackness in the dawn

and distorted relics


There's more to view in a dew drop than what lies in my backyard -- years of muck and mucking about-- burial too difficult

in sunlight images shine like crystal ball reveal my mind in poetic disturbance leaking lust and blood on dried grass


I won't know my chakras when I'm drunk even if I do yoga nidra and fool myselfconsuming a peg or two

read dissertation on stylistics and comment on what is not done

it's still the ego that dominates and I think I'm great fool


R.K.Singh (2012)
