Not Me

Not Me short poem

Photo by wlcutler

So much Krisnachura was strewn on the path,
we stomped on them, wind was tousling—
so sweet, like a lovely woman, musk of wild
champak. The perfume reminds me of exquisite
palms, deep coiffure and wild dreams of night.
Then I smiled—who was the man crossing the fiction
of a reality in the heart of beauty, was it me ?

When the curtain was blown away, a glimpse of her thighs
and elegant elbows resting on the desk, on other side who is the man,
nonchalant, smoking away his time, why he did not kiss her ?
Only eyes met eyes—an ethereal catwalk, an improbable awareness
of souls. In the coffee shop, the intangible couple gave me a sudden pang,
an anguish stalking me endlessly—they did not belong to this darned earth
just came for a jaunt.
