Raising the bar

Raising the bar 
By S.Jagathsimhan Nair 

Come along, mate, 
Let us cross this concourse of coincidences and pray before this 
ever-evaporating deity of oblivion. 
And offer the termite hills of our doubts 
at the altar of this counter-god. 

Placed before his liquid justice 
is our shared compendium of one mind 
two heads and four arms in the form 
of some kind of a binary or joke. 

Are we algebraically trying to tie up 
the imponderables like 
mind, head and means,or just 
offering up our movables like 
money and matrimony and 
immovables like kids and tits. 

But the new mind is a dumb platform 
like meadows are just mud 
And the means as always converges 
to come-what-may. 

Any which way, let us not go slow 
into our convulsions 
into contrition 
into oblivion. 

Inspiration:The painting ' Two women sitting at a bar' by Pablo Picasso, 1902.

    this is very intriguing, jaggy, again unusual use of language, i especially like the ending...picasso is one of my favourite artists but i'm not familiar with that particular painting, i'd need to look at it to fully appreciate the poem sweetie xoxo
