The Poet As Mere Spectator

and so there was this child
left by the mother who was washing
her body in another
room

the child crawls and walks its
way finally
to the dining table
and pulls the table cloth
where a cup of hot coffee
is put

hot coffee is poured on its face
and the baby screams
and screams and screams
at the top of his voice

i hear it but what can i do
i am the poet
and you give me this job of
a mere spectator

next time, tell me, i am more than that
i can be superman
to that child
only if you ask.

The Poet As Politician

every hour the poets knock the door of my senses
if you have time my dear
please read my latest poem
i have read yours and they're good
(what does he care? he has his own cares to care for)

and they keep on knocking
and i keep on lying too with my grin as wide as the cheetah
your poems are great
just perfect for me.. oh i love this one too

how hungry can a poet be as a politician
hungry for praise
lusting for honor

wanting to have a name where there are none
except perhaps in tombstones

yes i will compromise with an epitaph

here lies the poet as a politician
he is read upon his own request

Requiscat In Pace!

i place the star after his date of birth
i place a cross after his date of death.

and of course at the lowest portion
upon his request

RSVP.

The Poet Friend Of Mine

the last time i saw him
he wore thick glasses
but it did not deter him
from being interested
with what he cannot see
without it.

he uses his hands to feel.
he embraces all those that he love
he keeps his imagination alive

from far
i only read his poems

his words are all alive
like water
filling in the cracks of life

like clouds
taking subtle shapes
and always transient

his spirit spreads throughout
the universe
his mind my mind too
after that moment when a certain light
arrives
and flickers and then forever gone
in the vastness of air

The Poet Is Looking For Love Deep İN The Night

sometimes you may find
sincerity to a poem as to
the date when it is written,

the hour particularly tells you
that a poem is written when
everyone in the house is
fast asleep, and

that someone
cannot sleep, because he
has to write some words for
someone, who

too, cannot
sleep,

not really because they
are insomniacs, much less
vampires looking for blood,
but perhaps someone

who is
looking for love, even in the
dark, even in the wee hours
even when love

is no longer
there, even when the night
is dead, even when there is
no one alive in this world
to tell him that he is alive
and must by all means and
at all cost, deserve to

be happy.
