Sanjeev Sethi


Tributaries of love
cruise through
the testimonials
of intrigue and intimacy
to coalesce on my thumb
when there’s need
to meet you cap-a-pie in mind.
Portion of pearls
fill me on
with quality of coupling.

On line

Posting accomplishments
now and again
can never be
nexus of true happiness.
Bliss needs no bazaar.


Prehensile tendencies tied us.
Initial empressements
added sheen
to crusts of closeness.

Anabasis saw us unerring
to essence,
who was wrapping whom.

That’s when the katabatic
its interest in blending
with our bedlam.


Uneven footprints ornament
the borders
of my bent.
Canned music follows
their clef.
In this din and declivity
I breathe.

Flat, mutual funds
and other farthings
will land at legatee.
My pangs and poems
aren’t allocable.
They will surround
their landing-place.


When votaries
of electoral politics
employ sub-par policies:
how does the balloter
express his despair?
Phronesis touches a few
after lucubration:
rest aren’t as laudable.
Luminescence sweeps
the ornamentation
and orneriness.
Hagiographies of hate
skitter off from far and near.
What is the fallout
of this churning?
