Mary Anne, The Snake

Don’t be mad.I’ve moved the illusion, and I thought you would be glad. Don’t be mad.Don’t be mad.There’s a serpent used to live in the heaven,who needed no trap.She came willingly, and showed me the map. I went there. Ask her name,and she’ll talk. Mary Anne,she survived all.Mary Anne, she crawled through the Eden,Mary Anne,…

My Pet Dragonfly and I

My pet dragonfly and I,Was happy roaming by.We did try,To stick to one home and sky,But at nights we heard the river cry,And we had to find out why!

Our Own Western Lights

When I yet hadn’t touched you, and all your secret shames,I thought of light of the stars,that yet hadn’t reached earth. I thought of the past like one thinks of tomorrow. I thought of the midnight you,Who didn’t have to anymore.Anymore put on brave faces, and stride. Where you become as still as a water…

Of Tea Stalls without Addresses and Letters without Ends.

Meet me at the tea stall.I can’t give you the address,It doesn’t have one.It changes places whenever. I’ll wear a ginger flower in my hair,and a leaf in my heart.Wear a forest in your smile, okay? I thought of ending it.Meet me at the tea stall—and end there.Then it just kept going.We would’ve missed the…

Letter for the Longest Night

Morning came bearing good news.The olive forest wrote back,This time with an address.It’s been one hundred years, And I didn’t find any solitude. I tossed and turned through time.I made very little attempt to live.I mourned very little for me.I filled my lungs with golden despair.And that wasn’t fair.But what is? But now…Now I know…

Three Hundred and Sixty Four Days

One day I kept outside.One day for airing out the grievance. One day to bathe in the holly water.One day I’ll talk of nothing. And I’ll sail Elsewhere and make out with fairy men.I’ll gift them fallen leaves,and tell them how pretty they are. They are pretty,like ancient trees. I’ll talk of nothing. And I…

8 Minutes Late

The sick pale God of Dread smiled with rotten teeth,As if to say, “Yeah! I know!” When I accepted there was no way out, that’s when I knew.That’s when I died. That’s when the dread dusted off.The God has done his job. But I was late to my own funeral. That’s when I realized.An inescapable…

While These Visions Did Appear

When people are just people,the ducks would return to the pond, it was agreed. That was a long time ago. The ducks gave up and went elsewhere. The moon, meanwhile, never took part in such agreements.It was immoral to meddle in mortals, the night before eclipse she said. So half of people were listed as…

My Dear Dung Beetle,

When old days went to heaven and giggled at old jokes,The new lights went to the corners and made up new shadows. That was the time when I decided not to go. I decided to stay a little longer.I decided to sulk and talk shit a little longer. For the lights that loathed no one.For…

Anamnesis

Monday it was time to lay down a little bit,Monday it was clear in the sky. I don’t trust Mondays. They don’t have opinions about anything. Anything, to them, can become everything, And everything nothing. I don’t like Mondays. I rather have Fridays treat me like a stranger, Than Mondays treat me like a friend….
