The Look

Written By: Devika Mathur


Watch carefully,

a life so subtle, airy

leaks from sideways

into a spiral knot of susurrus sigh,

levitating into a figure of nothingness,

mocking this day face of orange goddess,

A high wuthering callous air.

Shape-shifter,

A waft of mute noise.

All things now remain alert.

Flitting lips,

A joyous sound.

Like nothing ever leaked,

like nothing palpitated.

Floral prints on chest now,

from neck to threads of moon lit bosom.

Here my life begins like an end of

flamingo sun.
