Television Poems: 26 / 500

Applauding A Boo

Rating: 5.0

Vegetables on the chopping board
Inaugurate a television recital..
I chop chop
Recital going on
The lady joins me harmoniously
Chopping, chopping, chopping
Chopping the brinjal, raga
Potato, tala, onion, lyric
Her vocal chords strain to wriggle
The accompaniments, onion shed laughing tears
Dissonant, discordant, cacophony
Screeches to countless decibels
I'm chopping lady's finger
My finger weeps red
