Paranoia - Poem by Satish Verma

Multiple tongues followed
some strangers to see the
trafficking of images between space
and promises. Somewhere
adjectives were being cheated.

A tumor was growing in brain
locked, enhancing, malignant:
condemned destiny. Implicity of incest
in same gene pool. Where
the evolution has stopped?

A missile has intercepted and smashed
the moon into ten thousand
sins. Palpable wreckage.
We were shoved into dustbin
A pile of starving skulls.

Clotted stone blood. Mountains
were wounded. My mentor
had a paranoia. Delusion
Of falling snow
from burning sky.

    To watch an ant traverse the impossible skin of a pachyderm, in summer heat, is a daydream for the doctor. The thermometer is soothing instrument of inexactitude, enhanced by the shape of the glass. Stick your tongue, say, The well has gone dry. (Report)Reply
