'I Have No Faith' - Poem by K.S.Subramanian Subramanian

Familiarity, a stranger in the dark;

Shadows open out with shadowy

meanings, euding the outstretchedn palm.

That scribe counted not his hey days

cares less for the last day in the wings.

So many knew the way to his cabin,

now shun the route to his house;

Will a few lines in the obituary

shed light on vacuous memories?

'Does it matter? ' he grins, stained

teeth dying in weak cavities;

'I have no faith, none to keep either'

“Globalisation too is faith',

I teased; 'keeps emptying human

waste into the valley.'

He grinned again, dying tooth

trembling in recognition.

The wheel turns on its own axle.
