Today - Poem by Akash Mandal

today I'll be okay
all looks golden
all looks gay
today I'll speak
nothing black
nothing bleak
today I'll rise
above the grey
above the wise
today I'll brew
something dark
something true
today I'll cheat
on bland greens
on bland meat
today I'll wear
anything white
anything debonair
today I'll stop
craving things in amber
craving things I pop
today I'll call
my lover marooned
my lover in fall
today I'll turn Cupid
tickle them pink
tickle them stupid
today I'll play and sing
vintage Blues
vintage Swing
today I'll paint
the town red
the town acquaint
today I'll search the sky
for my share of silver
for my space to fly
today I'll not sail
under false colours
under a false veil
today I'll not be
a clockwork orange
today I'll break free.
