SWAYING

Written by: Satish Verma

A chocolaty moon was rising.
I have lost my riverbed.
Accuser has become accused.

The hangman has shifted
the ground while glistening
in moonlight. Oxymoronic ?

Eponym exited the lips of a drone fly.
A flotilla of tears
dies in an eye of a storm.

An audacity of a drifter
to stop the promiscuous honors
of strangers in death. 

Only night-bloomers will watch
the sunrise in eternal lonliness.
The roots will always stay in dark.
