Sukasah Syahdan Poems
Every hesitant good-bye with no prospect of Hi! is itself a demise in mini size.
A Kid on Her Lap
a kid on her lap an extra busfare being saved
To recall nothing past And expect nothing yet to pass To never suffer from boredom
1/ thoughts aren’t your pets ever taught to come by at willpower
a) this spirited assemblage is a placid pilgrimage: the girls and boys we were
1/ here's a picture of us taking an impromptu walk side by side in the park
To recall nothing past
And expect nothing yet to pass
To never suffer from boredom
Or give in to fiefdom
To need not be brave nor coy
Sometimes, I wish I were a koi
