A puff eager, by the banks,

taken to resolve;

resolve what seems already solved

Mundane ashes in the backwaters dissolved

An axis stagnant, eager to tilt;

eager to revolve.


Is there a Bulbul as such-

voicing melodies under a raven’s watch?

Is there a provoking touch-

gifting warmth under an alien clutch?


The lady with synthetics torn;

deprived of stainless knobs,

takes a dip

Emerges with a stretched lip


Is she a rebel?

Or is it I

who is a fake foam.


Gangotri has lost

Ganga has won

The one tilted shifts back

Absurdity meets its clarity

back home.
