Holding Back

Satish Verma

The credibility 
of an apple 
becoming an icon. 

It draws first 
blood, when you― 
were sleeping. 

It still matters: 
thinking of milt 
but sinking your ferry. 

There was no epilogue. 

A midsummer night. 
I will forget 
your name. 

Standing in a 
queue, you should not 
punish yourself 

becoming unmatched.
