We Are Fine In Kathmandu

we filter our water before we drink it
we filter our air before we inhale it
we have yet to learn to filter
the news before we swallow it,
the leaders' promise before we applaud it,
the friendly neighbour's pat before we discover
how easily we are beguiled.

we have played tall with each other
without seeing how great dwarfs we are.
we have believed in the volume of the demanding voice,
in its commanding tone
but never understood how logic too rules the world.
we have polished and glittered our exterior
but have sounded like hollow ...

Read the full of We Are Fine In Kathmandu


I wished her good night and my wish came true.
She purrs her dreams in bedded melody.
Beside her warm and comforting length
awake to pitch black silence of the night
I toss and turn in silent agony
like a reed in the current of a stream
that will not stop … that cannot stop at all
until it has reached the blackest carrion sea.
