prose

Tara

Tara remembers her doings. The pale kitchen sink speaking of chipped dreams, tectonic thighs of fidgeting swamp. Her lipstick is all nude today. Nude as the man of her dreams, saliva draped carefully between the folds of her lips.

And her purse sliding between her perfect round bosom. She wears sunrise as her makeup, with gleaming colors of a portrait. A hue of morning yawn. Her methods are clairvoyant. She sweeps a floor, performing a geometry to meet her desires, back & forth.

A bowl full of summer rains. Tara is a madhouse, today. Her cotton saree slipping on the floor, almost swaying the mosaic squares of the floor. She runs like a fever in a house. Moist enough to hold and gulp. An insouciant flower of the Himalayas. She would shove all the flickering desires, like the peels of onion and garlic in the bin. Not giving care.

Tara goes off to another house now. Pinning and swirling her hair with a bobby pin once again and she sweeps the floor again. A house so porous. Almost like a slice of starlight.

  1. Tara is on a magical journey of dreams, passion, and desire and you have penned her beautifully. I loved this narrative poetry from you, Devika. I guess I have read one more from you a couple of months back.

  2. Hello I’m projectillogic as of today I have 39 songs at http://www.soundcloud.com/projectillogic I used to be on reverb Nation but they stopped letting me upload new songs at reverb and at reverb these are the song reviews I had in my press kit
    “This is more my thing. It’s very upbeat and the guy rapping raps as good as snoop dogg who is the king of rapping. He has a very good voice for rapping and the backtrack is very good as well. Good rhyming in this rap as well. I really like this and hope I get more of this music.
    “With regards those 2 comments you mentioned, I speak from the point of view of an engineer and from listening experience. For the first, there are many similarities between your music and music which has become successful and/or well known (as well as many differences), so with the appropriate nurturing and treatment, it could become successful”

    “The song beat was great I loved the lyrics. The rap was just great I loved it I hope other people like this song to. The instrumental was great. The artist did a great job good work for him.The raps of the song was perfect I liked the rap it made since I liked this song. The rapper I think did a great job and I hope he can get big and get to be one of the greatest rappers of all time. I want this rapper to be known for his singing and I want people to know him.”
    “I really like this! The chorus I like a lot too. I love the lyrics. It’s deep and truthful. I like the diffent voices, it sounds like more than on person. The auto tune sounding voice is amazing with the song. The song is not too fast, or too slow, but just right. The lyrics are very understandable, and this song is just great. I would say a hit if it were to be on the radio. :)”

The fingers of fury I killed the bery love feel me I dont scare me no no no no fight me no ground!”
    “The 15 years rapping experience definitely shows, that’s definitely not something you can fake.”
    “I definitely see the potential in your music too. Keep at it and I’m sure eventually something’s gotta happen :D”
    “You are right, I see in you a lot of potential, and I see the “creative fire” burning really strong in your heart.”
