Intersections Of Mystery
Your bodily angles and curvature
In the depths of night do seem
Precise in form as well as nature,
And at each touch, I hear this scream:
Don't pull a line.
Why sharpen a curve?
Blunting angles is a crime.
Why roughen a swerve?
But every night, my dear caress --
I pull and sharpen, blunt and roughen.
Then your sounds are like the press
Announcing: Your geometry's betterin'.
your presence, like chlorophyll
rejuvenates life -- creates gussets.
Rajpath for a jalopy!
in the silence, a shrill
sound -- like from trinkets,
chisels inorganic bonds and a free
state of mind. Let us fill
and refill such moments in buckets
holding hands for a canopy.

and the battle-front of academics
only to discover that marriage
is not merely leaving
but leaving and searching for the same things.
together we built a home
together we began our search
for all that i had left behind --
relationships. job. power of academics.
measured by calipers
we neither won nor lost.
we simply added
and integrated values.
togetherness was synonymous with life.
i lived even when alone,
but, dear husband,
only you and i in progressive waves
of passion could've designed
