Apathy – A Visual Composition

Lens-15 mm
aperture - 16


dark clouds meandering
in a sorrowful slow pace
thru d grey sky -
portent of a *Libran thunderstorm


we - old mother & me
sittin' in d dark verandha-
not a single dropp of kerosene
left in the lamp.


unqualified, misexperienced
unemployable- attributes 4 me.

diphtheria, cough &
chest pain-mother.
no #sugar or pressure for her.

*thula varsham-thulam -malayalam month corresponding for libra - incessant with thunderstorm in kerala
# sugar - malyalam local parlance for diabetes mellitus
pressure - ' ' ' ' hypertension
