My Roman Holiday - Poem by Usha Pisharody

Quite by accident
I stepped out of
my straitjacket...

And astounded
myself at
my temerity.

Incognito.
A translucent
cloak for its
misty aura,

I surrender myself
with a gypsy's heart
to collect a wealth
of memories
to hoard away!

And all the while
I know-
I'll have to
step back.

The straitjacket's
waiting.

So it cannot
last.
Of course.

Like a leaf
from a book
I'll never write...

My Roman Holiday.
