Pyrokinection: A Poem by Ram Krishna Singh

Pyrokinection: A Poem by Ram Krishna Singh:

Their freedom to choose
keeps them together for love
exchange discourse for lunghi
body for liberation
yoga and meditation

in leisure try to find out
who is available for
a fling or contrive meeting
or turn legs to jellied state
or sip tea under the trees

a hypocrisy
of awakening in group
they jump and lie on each other
in the name of sadhana
teeter on the edge of ruin

Flowers don't bloom
in tribute to
builders' apathy

the trees are dying:
they too know they'll be felled
or the heat will kill

the concrete rises
calamity too will rise
none talk the ruins they bring

I've lived...

I've lived 22700 days
awaiting  a day that could become
god's day in eden earth or within

or even my grandson's smile
on his first day in mother's arms

now i sit an empty boat
on a still river
and shake with quail dreams
