Poessay: Rosary 12 - Kohled Eyes

August 30, 2008

the bird perched on that leafless tree
has no wings

fasurda bulbul
zakhmON ki paasdaari kertay hu’aye
shaakh per baithi hay

the smiling eyes
on the mime's face streaking red rained fate
or vodka

woh shOkh aankhiaN
lakh duk’h chupha’aye muskurati
rehti haiN sada

the kohled eyes
behind shades, under the wide hat

the speaking eyes
smiling, mischievous, inviting -  or red
and swollen

hard to know
unless we discard blinkers and peer
