the dark and desolate corners of the mind
frightens me like the sight of a dog
devilishly mourning at the full moon
the horror…the horror**
snaking down my bones
like blood from a fresh deep wound
Buddha smiles in the wound of the desert
and proudly exhibit the jewel, Kargil; and boasts
it brings unity ….
in the night
i dreamt of mushrooms
and bubbling human skin…
are they going to drop the bomb?***
