A LONG SHOT

                 A LONG SHOT

My doc ,lousy smile on lips
White fumes emitting, my disease
Panic syndrome ,
Curable, Time heals .
Chillness creeping leeches
Stripped delusions, fear flows
Veins shrnk
Life cling on hanger
Paranoid schizophrenia  
 .Fever smear blue dye
Over brain
Shuddered ,desperatly looking 
I could see her snoring facing the wall.
My pal far away
On rocky land ,knows nothing .

Tracy, that spiritted negress sings
'Gimme your life
I shall purify it with a can of petrol'.

Tabs,shots ,scans
Unconditional surrender-
Knotted threads,mystic chants
Copper plates with primitive scribes
To see, hear , feel
Before final fall


Gas cylinder turned on Odour of death
A flicker, turbulence-
Charred floor caught
In a long freeze shot............
