Chasing The Wild Cat

Satish Verma

Pushed aside and 
sequestered, like a 
frieze, you hang on a wall. 

From grape to grapefruit 
the journey was tedious. 
When you start reading the mind, 
the crisis deepens. 

Cannabis? Like psychoactive; 
the anger rises against hyper― 
male identity. A gender 

based disorder. It kills 
scores of cuckoos. Who will 
give now, a mating call? 

A prison-break. You set 
free all the songs and 
release the inmates of conscience.
