Vacation - Poem by Prathibha Nandakumar
The fish at the pond were a surprise
Didnt expect such abundance
The snake on the lawn brought a hearty laugh
What did it symbolise for the modernist?
The golden sun set was a perfect backdrop
Someone had made a proper bed
Fresh sheets have a way of enticing
God, when was it, the last time?
To get under the shower and get ready
was a pretext. You went for a drink at the bar
and I stepped out into the lawn to speak to the fish
When we finally met in the bed
I didn’t notice the lipstick mark on your shirt collar
and you didn’t bother about the grass in my dishevelled hair
What an orgy it was.
