So what do I say about myself?
That I write under my real name?
Or that I am a semi grounded wanderer
Who has tripped the world's wilder parts?
For over fifty years now?
Do I mention what I do -
Manage people, crippled inside
With fears and worries endless sympathy?
Can that be the bureaucrat I think I am?

    I have finally read all your poems and I am quite pleased with what I have consumed. You have a stark, economical style that still is full of beauty, non-normal words, and striking images. My two favorites are Anjengo and Leaving Bath. There is a pleasant confidence in your work, which nicely walks the line between saying too much and not enough.

Best Poem of uday balakrishnan

Our Son Returns

Arrivals are always difficult
The awkward greeting
That tentative grimace unfurling into a smile
A guffaw and then the hug
Melts formality and time
He is back home again for a while
Seems to me he never left
Ah what fun!
