Starvation - Poem by Sadiqullah Khan
Starvation leads you to believe
Every brown matter is a morsel,
The Freudian fixations –
Every shadow looks a damsel.
The basic distinction of gender
Non-exist, and flaunt –
Refer to beauty, would turn the head,
Ego-testic, they make many faces.
They had been hiding in veils,
Who wore long beards and beads.
Three is less, with four content,
Their history is seventy or more.
They had been dancing all the night,
Like flagellums whirling, fantasizing,
But it was not her hand, rather
By winds the stems, up and down.
