These Days

You walk alone, because the one you trusted is the one with the spear.
It is strange in these days how no one seems to care.

Calm as no stories heard, Days to count: in white you vowed,

In House of God you called each other brother and sister,
You blood related, blood related, Technologies never lie

As If I Controlled The Time

It was a rainy day, I’s returning home,
The road was not lonely, yet I’s alone.
I was wetting, as no umbrella I’d then.
I was shivering almost wetting in rain.

An Alphabet

A is the Alphabet, A at its head;
A is an Antelope, agile to run.
B is the Baker Boy bringing the bread,
Or black Bear and brown Bear, both begging for bun.

The Sea

There are certain things -a spider, a ghost,
The income-tax, gout, an umbrella for three -
That I hate, but the thing that I hate the most
Is a thing they call the SEA.

and trails of sparks up the back of the chimney. Miniature rockets
peppering the black bricks with golden stars, as though a gala
flamed a night of victorious wars.

From nothing rose a sudden storm.
