No Intimidation

Satish Verma

A weird solatium 
was offered by putting 
off the lights. 

The animal inside you, 
wants to apologise 
for remaining pure. 

The pastoral grief of― 
a wayward priest― 
comes to fore to be stared at. 

Lessons inspired by 
light were waiting 
for the dark night. 

And a tiger mauls 
a hidden lecher 
in the deep bush.
