Koshy) This first poem is based on the photograph and not vice versa. All rights reserved. Image copyright to Anita Travis White and poem copyright to Koshy A.V. 2013.
Holes punched in, dust sprinked on a concave backdrop with a dome inset
A thin, soft, curved hammock to sleep on as a bed, bound
Free and rope-less to the sky, with the near-dangerous horizon that is not an airman’s warning –
And the dark to the fore; in the distance the black trees hive-swarming.
