Above The Earth's Green - Poem by Ram Krishna Singh

He is a solo drum
trying to get his rhythm
against the sputtering rains

the mud sticks on trousers
wet and cool it can't sleep
in the thorns of our yard

I seek my balance in
yog-nidra in the closed
room think his thoughts and lies

we weave to ensnare spirit
that pricks the balloon we pump
to rise above the earth's green
