The story I told my son in bedtime : Orange


Beneath orange peels of the sky
Orange Juices are falling like rain

People are drinking without restraint
Some kept that juices with cups

Naked bodies are dancing
As they felt happy

Then, rain of orange juices stopped
People ,too, fell asleep.

Let tonight be red, 
red as a glowing conflagration usually is.
As a fiery meteor crashes upon the earth,
so these argent moonbeams kiss your eyelids,
and enkindle the fire of concupiscence,
which, for me,
is more psychedelic than the lunar bliss.
In you I observe...Read More

I surrender
I surrender,
I have fought the good fight,
I have outlasted most,
In the fight that is seemingly lost.

I will leave the battlefield.
To spend more time with my grandson.
So one day in the future he might be the one,
To stop the slide into...Read More

Etymologists hate poetry -

Of course the bloody rhyme's not perfect!

Dick And Jane
When playing games, Dick was the winner.
Loss after loss made Jane simmer.
But she settled down
when in joy she found
they would be stars in a reading primer.

It Is A Delusion

My eyes - My pupils , they dilate

Hypnotic - I see verbal text
I wonder is there any intelligence

Cerebellum's Synaptic Soiree
Lifted lightly from familiarity
Sleep's gesture caresses cells
Taken to nearby bewilderment
Where stagnancy busily dwells

Liquid lambent shooting star forms fragment
Vapid vexations vanquished in fantasy's fire
Mist masked span transcends measurement
Vision's fusion surpasses language quagmire 

Imprisoned waking cognition 
held in category's secure structure 
Dispelled...Read More

What is culture

Watching “france24” one would think culture was invented in Paris.
Well, it wasn’t
The Parisians are rude and live on onion soup.
The reason Paris became famous as an art place
Were cheap rent and poor painters and writers flocked there
Well, it...Read More
