Cactus

Rating: 4.0

Thorns are my language.
I announce my existence
with a bleeding touch.

Once these thorns were flowers.
I loathe lovers who betray.
Poets have abandoned the deserts
to go back to the gardens.
Only camels remain here, and merchants,
who trample my blooms to dust.

K.Satchidanandan is a cactus lover and is flirting with cactus flowers, going for a camel ride in the desert sands where the dunes keep making and unamaking and the caravans of gipsies going. The desert blooms the petals of his poesy. Against the backdrop of it, he thinks of the thorns and twitches, languages and the different modes of expression.
