The uninitiated

a poem by Jaya Ramchandani

Abandon the anechoic darkness
kill the indolence
ride the waves that manipulate time
breathe
red blue… red blue
this is madness
seven sins
a sin… is a sin… is a sin
get up, stand up, scoot… scurry… scramble
I woo you… you woo him…
deranged world
banal people
wait!
Am I one of them?
The big joke is me
fifty floors up
I have a colossal aura
Love is… an endless aching need
I’m waiting for that feeling
I’m waiting for that feeling
I’m waiting for that feeling
to come
Is it in his kiss?
Coffee for two
it’s not raining.
