Krishna's Advice to Arjuna - Part Two


for Thodti trailing barefeet his dried coconut-stick broom on cracked macadam
in the gutter festering oozing fresh month-old drying turds urine remains of fed-up banana-leaves skins withered jasmine garlands drained motor-oil from scooter-taxis overfed flies lean stray kids fowl cows
        all that was wonder from afar
            magic mythic mystery the lingo of gods on earth
the brahmin vegetarian clattering-pans over order shouting eating-hotels
as though the heavens deigned to camp down on his doorstep
   derailed on their celestial inter-galactic circuit

his mind if he cared to exercise one was of little use to him
nor were they to his ancestors
called upon only to clean the bottoms off those who
shat upon his forefathers for ages
his only use for his intelligence
is to know his place
  minus the alphabet
     minus arithmetic
         minus the patinenkilkkanakku
              minus the grandold Vedic mystic gods and rishis
minus the right to think for himself

only the dullard’s right to die daft dull damned
      and be reborn in the womb of ignorance

So much for your Godly advice Charioteer Krishna
For don’t Gods only talk to Gods on Earth

Detach yourself first then
Do not feel for those you kill

For what lofty ideal the Mahabharatha
        pitted mythically gambling polyandrous cousins

Is India today a magical-realist myth
      or a cranking up Indo-Pak Armageddon

do you

I wait to her your voice for two seconds
Weeks goby and I don't hear from you
I cant tell you why I worry so much 
I just want to hold you and kiss you
The ultimate goal is for you  to know to feel wanted by me
And you that you will only have that feeling with me truly
I love you more and more every day every second
My heart longs for you
I will show you im different
I am good 
I will be there for the good the not so great and the awesome
Im your girl today tomorrow and always
Do you feel the same way? 
Even if you don't I will still love you because your great
I want that connection that everyone wants I want that security 
That bond that no one or nothing can break even if its tipped off the edge of a cliff slowly falling
It will still not break
I will never quit on you
Please give me hope because you give me everything that my heart feels at every second
I need you I need to hold you and cry out my fears
Is there something here for you? 
I cant feel you so go ahead and tell me what you need?
I love you with everything I have to offer
