Treasure Island

Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar.

(June 15,1942 / Aravayal, karaikudi, Tamil Nadu, South India)

Voyeurism


Engaged in talks with a potent woman,
Man’s eyes feed on her body; he’s helpless.
Watching a woman singing on the stage,
Man’s eyes devour her visage; he’s helpless.
Woman knows it and will have no complaints.
Is voyeurism a sexual assault?

Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
