A lifelong wait has ended
I sigh with relief. Not too soon
it opens and closes like
a May flower, shimmers in the sun
shuts up at dusk.
The carousel is transient
hours do not count
nor days stand in a row
it is years like a long tail
nearly a decade, a quarter
of a century to be precise.
crawling, walking, jogging,
running,’ sleeping, turning dormant,
picks a momentum, swoons
and falls half dead, resurrects,
droops three fourths paralyzed.
it does not fit into any schedule,
who to blame, I lament the co parceners
levy little interest mean not the financial
but the execution. Happy to continue the status quo.
Their children rap and knock the door.
Let me confess. what I have said is a dignified
camouflage of their capacity.
