FUNERAL RITES

              FUNERAL RITES

Hunter and the hunted -
It's a breach of contract
Finger , pointed at me ,accusing ,my dad .

Muse forefather , consecrated water ,
An agreement on half burnt chest ,
Primitive scribes chiselled-

Dad, you shake me in my sleep
Lifeless curses on me
Zenith of fear, I agonists
Tent a bye-pass
My love offerings to you dad .

My son breakes glass
Leap beyond circles
I weep in remorse
How I imposed solitude on you!

Brunt out ashes
Broken words-
Dad..............my Day.
