Raj Arumugam Poems
jumps up on me
with a BOO! and a Hee! Hee! Hee!
torn apart and snoozing moon;
lovely moon, romantic moon
but is hardened into thought
and by the time one dies
most are fixed and screwed into
be warned at the outset
this poem is about nothing;
is like a holy man:
all you need
are words and texts stubbornly tied to some creed
I Depress You, Don'T I?
I depress you, don't I?
You are so bubbly, cheerful, smooth with your words,
you make conversation always as easily
as a well-oiled engine hums;
exuberant with a pinch of irritation
in your confidence with sing-song words and links.
In person and on the phone,
you roll your head, use your hands expressively; you laugh,
