Being 2 - Poem by Prathibha Nandakumar

I offer you this space to build,

or destroy, demolish, demark,
deconstruct, demystify, design, designate
or simply damn

the curves, the planes, the depths, the uneven 'terrain,
the many-colored, multi-textured interior landscape.

You distrust
and hence you define the thin separating layers

and pick a shovel or a axe and
claim the flesh a means of determining
your decisiveness

and I defy you to disagree.
