Evocative Images

Satish Verma

A single line, 
undefined, hangs 
to make your life vulnerable. 

The drifting starts. 
You fumble for the right― 

to convey the urgency 
of a moratorium. The 
dew on the grass, 

was not ready to 
accept the rainbow of 
false promises. 

Flat refusal comes 
from the deprived homes. 
The poverty has become a sin. 

The elegant procession 
of the king was throwing 
dust in our eyes.
