The Poet And The Lover - Poem by samyak jain

wired loose,
generally seen
not much
of a man
of money and commerce,
a poet
is a beggar
in essence,

if not asking
for love and kiss
on the way side,
the poet
an ascetic
in temperament,
hates the rich
for the filth
they sit on,

like the lover,
equally wired loose

between the
wife and the beloved,
the beloved and the wife,
the desirable and the available,
the legal and the loyal
fails to decide
who to go home with.
