A Caution for Love Poetry
Born ignorant, as the hormones activate the other love, huge as the universe, we learn with all our senses each bright letter
Andha (1990 - 2001)
We who had loved you abandoned you at the end. Sunk in our individual miseries, a failing family betrayed a trust, lost that one true enduring selfless love it had found:
The mirror holds a countenance of grief seamed with the lines you and the years incised. It's over at last, I think, without relief.
Prince of gamebirds and master of crooked flight, the snipe the sea at dusk brought in as prisoner looked at me with bright obsidian eyes gently refused food and clumsy care
Xenophon of Cos ministers to the lame and earnest emperor. Seneca, exiled, vents his stoic rage on the salt Corsican air.
Abani, Are You There?
In dark sleep slumbers the street,
October 2 [the birthday of Mahatma Gandh...
Every year must you come around, greatest of heroes, most awkward of men, to shame us with your unsolvable paradox - the dichotomy between means and end?

My earliest memories smell of dope and shapes of balsa wings and fin and a squat red screaming CL stunt which one day went and barrelled in.
New Year's Day,2001
Mother Courage from Fyzabad, thirty four, (married at fourteen to a violent drunk who broke four of her front teeth before giving her five quick babies and falling dead,
The doctrine of personal responsibility is easier to state than to live up to.
Incident in Parbati Valley
Two marches back the whispers had begun about a camper dead, mauled by a bear, somewhere ahead. At Pandava Bridge at noon
Reflections on a Romantic Potboiler
