The Spanish king and I
The King and I
I have seen the king of Spain abdicating 
in full uniform, but his cap was too small 
this made him look jolly except for his
cane and the small steps of an old man.

I BEGIN TO THINK
Abdicating the shadows;
totemic.
I return back to dig up the buried-
moon from the ruins of poetry.

It benumbs.
No response was coming from
cajoling the black secrets-
of time-cast.

A storm was raging in a pack

Demolishing parental worries
Warning them of stinging wasps
Always looking for new victims
Surrounding...Read More

of decline, abdicating the singed shrine
of nameless opposition, nowhere the roots

Role Reversal
And he pacing about the house
Had all the time to do
The things he lost time for before
To keep the promises 
He made to himself in each ritual
Morning of his nine to five
And yet as if disenfranchised by opportunity
This switch of...Read More
