Treasure Island

Abhinav Baruah

(January 31 / Jorhat)

The Executive

I wear my blue checkered white shirt
And fasten a tie on neck
Just to hide my worn out heart and flawless cracks
I am twenty first century’s executive
Results of capital and other exclusive

    I like your wording in this very much. I will enjoy reading this again, and I plan to send to a friend who is trying on that tie right now. Beautifully worded.

    I enjoed it very much, but, as English is foreign to me, there is something I didn't catch - 'flawless cracks'. Would you be so kind to explain this to me? (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
