Obscure shades

lights on this orange body, this wood is a proof my mouth is a squid, hanging to catch your wet breath. a fainting memory eats me. for i am a sucker of bones & heart. this is a spot of us, darling, the summery grass of love-making. i bite my scorched lips, i bite my… Continue reading Obscure shades

A time/ so called

Back at my vintage house in India, i have a memory dying there on the windowsill, a cobweb formation. a moth sucking life from another. there, a cataract lie envelopes my pale body. i see myself each day hushing this array of blue stack of migraines. i disavowal what made my pink- poetry once. and… Continue reading A time/ so called
