    TEA

    Undiluted sugary milk
    Flowing through a strainer-
    Her youth,
    Filling another's cup.
    And her dreams-
    The dust,
    Thrown in the trash.

    You sipped from the porcelain cup,
    And frowned,
    "Add less tea next time."

    I am burning
    And you are drowning
    You watch me burn
    I watch you drown
    Getting numb

    I passed the joint
    To the demon beside me
    I'm fine as long as I'm
    In this blanket
    I'm getting used to these
    Dangerous liasons
    A couple of decades of pain
    Pulling me in
    I swim up
    Surface
    Go back down
    I'm getting used to these
    Deep waters
    The dim lights
    Don't light my way
    I'm so used to this
    Cloudy mist
    Wash the salt off these wounds
    I can't go back home
    I'm getting used to this
    Floating along

    Fish

    You stood by the Ganges and dipped your hands in the water. I saw it swimming in your hands, hope, that was a tiny blue fish. You told me to watch it until you were back.

    The empress of not giving a duck

    It is what it is.
    Nonchalance shrugged.
    For a moment
    I was gripped by pain,
    Drowning in yesterday's
    pool of misfortunes,
    missed things.
    I get pulled out,
    a green goddess,
    puffing out my chest.
    It is what it is.

    APPARITIONS

    Yesterday, I had this sudden urge to drink filter coffee at the small shop nearby. Without much delay, I threw on a t shirt and shorts and started brushing my hair. In the mirror, an apparition of a girl from three years ago, wearing the same navy blue t shirt stared back at me.... Holding a cup of coffee in her hands and dreams in her eyes. "Not now", I told myself. I took off the t shirt and pulled out another one from my wardrobe.

    A black top, with golden buttons. I found myself standing in Nalla Beach Resort, wearing it, admiring the ocean and the night sky with you. I put down my beer and went down on one knee. You gasped. I said my vows and you said yours.

    A voice was screaming inside my head. "NO! NOT NOW", I tried to follow that voice, but felt myself fall in to an abyss. I became one of those two wild haired hippies in a jungle, listening to the cry of water hens.

    An hour later, I was sitting on the floor in my bra, surrounded by a pile of clothes and many apparitions. You were there too, in a white t, smoking a chillum. Your big round eyes pensive, telling me calmly that at some point, my throat would stop burning and my body would stop hurting.
