indira babbellapati

(visakhapatnam, india)

A la 'waiting for godot'


Never is assigned
the role we need to play
life evaporates
in shadow boxing
with self-assigned
roles and goals
like in ill-tailored clothes
we go about as
characters in an absurd play
and wait for godot
in meaningless hope
and get blown up
in a whiff of smoke...

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
