AFTERMATH

Between the mossy and thorned pathways
shadows slant. He trumps the press and praises PM
wisdom splashed in gonzo arguments
cocks the walk.  Others too feel his sting but prefer
silence. They know the caged parrot's free
to shame seven decades of democracy groomed
differently.  They know how weak they are
to stop the burning forest's ash from reddening
now aberrations clot in the mind
await Ram's hanging before the wounded converts
count the cries, lashes and piercings


--R.K.Singh

ENERGY BLOCK

Frazzled and restless
bouts of anxiety,
addiction, sleeplessness
spinal degeneration
pain in the neck and back
numbness in the legs
loss of teeth, libido,
anal bleeding, etc.

failure to stay focused
and dying desires to do
what I used to do
are not mere ageing

things get hairy, scary
with body failure
ailments pop up
spirit dries up
mind disconnects

I'm hardly centred
to clean my age's turd
on inner chakras
meditate and forget
the memories' load
and die a new being


--R.K.Singh

A Father's Complaint

For Priti by Ram Krishna Singh



How can I contain

her destructive energy

she conceals what she is

her toxic attitude



they all see

as she unshapes destiny

of her cornpone plots

in elitist mode



she lets down her own folks

with mendacious fabrications

brings doom to her own children

who were born innocent



brings shame to her husband

who seeks to see them rise



brings dishonour to us all

who hope to see her change

despite the vanity wall

she raised for years



she won't know what to do

when her parents are dead

or even we are no more



she can't even weep

or scream on anything she touches



she may then squiggle in her fate

alone in a lonely room

while others may look and not care

INTELLECTUALS


INTELLECTUALS
Stranded in the past
sparkling glasses in hand
intellectuals
preach ancient wisdom
to the new generation
diving nude in dried pool
to corral them along
the fence they sit bumfing
through knowledge googled
for the next day's sessions

CRESCENT MOON

crescent night
she keeps the flame alive--
unstilled smile

POETICS




The hole between words is vaginal
if the mind could penetrate


the seed won’t question age
inside the lines it crackles


with orgasmic pleasure
meanders through the tunnel 


from first breath to oblivion
stays erect, liberates the text



— Ram Krishna Singh
