Emptiness


Reads his eyes
in the mirror--
emptiness


WET SAREE

Clings to the body
her wet red saree
waving wrinkles



BIRTH BUDDHA

Sunday
my birth Buddha
lucky red



BIRTH BUDDHA

my birth Buddha
sitting on silk scarf--
self-restraint


HEAT

small shoots pop up
fade soon in scorching sun:
life force humming



Conspiracy

Angels whisper
when sleepless I look up--
a bad rap


SUNRISE

Lonely sunrise--
birds flying away in search
for worms in ash
