De Liberate Lee

slow and thought out?

i’ll be put out:

the pout,

berating the deliberate,

seeking to embrace

rash impulse,

reaches across

and tugs.

i give in, de-

liberately pro-

longing

the moment.

O! Dear!

Violet

Flowers in Violet by Kim Nelson

Flowers in Violet by Kim Nelson

violet ground

and cyan dust,

the fading silhouettes

of flowers past,

we flutter to the dust

in a heap of pale yellow

weathered petals

and memories of a violet spring.

An April Milan Morning

a wet Milan

clung to my over-sized coat

in dewy splotches

that shivered and fell,

brooked into clean green

water- still, then slow and quiet flow,

the shrubs on the bank shrugged,A Wet Milan

nonchalant in the presence of beauty.

Rebel says his lapel

but he says no to labels

and bubbles:

blood is but water-

colored and we are all air

and space, some with pace too

says he and runs, shouting-

but we’re of the same bloody blood;

now, file for libel!

Clean-cut Man

This Sunday,  I learnt of wing collars, paisley ties and gingham checks. There was more on the length and width of the ties, the fall of the trousers and fashion-tips on cuffs. Cuffs, collars, ties and checks- who ever said man is free?! When are we moving to silver shackles?

The First Raindrops

The earth flush,
Freshly wet,
No more a hothead
As the water flows
But a rain-portrait,
Suffused with a fleeting sense
Of self as can be.
I’m waiting too
For such a moment.

Document of Discussion : Cubical Talk

was that you?

in the pic?

the stance, the tee,

the shoes-

i just thought

he said in a rush.

no, no, not me!

not that tee! not me!

thank god he said

no hair or heave

other distaste,

sludge in public!

i shushed-

a stance? how can that be

when all i do

is trapeze-tease

on the middlest of lines;

i fled

into the open elevator

and whooshed out,

thinking

of ink and office mags

and how they smudge.

Yell-ow-ing

yellow, the color of summer

hotly side-stepping

age and rules yellow

and then the red i see

in streaks hers

and orange reflectors

on toes-

an ageing medley,

the ditty-

tired.

i want her to stop,

pause the dance,

cool it with a  splash

of blue

icy.

mulch am i?

raining on her

in summer too?!

A nightly sea

She had shades of darkness to wrap around. Her iris glinted blue now and then green again. The pupil was rock-black at night and slate-grey in the day. Me- I was just dust on her cheek, dust she might decide to sweep away with a flood of her salty tears.

A Home-spun Frock

Will you drop me
A line,
Say you’re fine
As a thread
Come loose on my home-
spun frock.
The frock fits no more
But write me more
Of you,
Find fine
Lo(o)se thread?
