One Dark Night

I hang a dried porcupine fish on the ceiling,
And with a nylon thread, in the dark, it looks like it is having a nice swim in the air.
I didn’t mind it has taken life, and so

When friend Sammy drops by,
He calls it art.
Inside me, it is what I call myself, an air porcupine; I love the spines all over me,
So no one touches me, and I would hurt everyone near me,
I call it my life, what does Sammy know anyway, except a claim for art,
One dark night, the porcupine fish got carried about his swim
And plunged into my open mouth and clogged my heart, I struggled for breath
From then on the nightmare did not stop…. life moves on with the porcupine fish.
How would Sammy know that art has coarsely etched life? The spines all over me,
The porcupine swimming in my belly, my chest congested, my tongue tied, my teeth gritting, my heart bleeding in a hundred pains with a hundred wounds.

Who Wants To Swim In Winter?

- Oh! I want to skate.
- Have you ever swum in winter here?
- Brrrr! What a question, Kate!
- You can sink. I want you to hear.
- I last swam four months ago,
‘To skate’ is not ‘to swim’.
- Take this stone and throw.
Have you thrown? It’s sunk, Tim.
- When I threw, it sank breaking the ice!
- You see the ice is too thin,
And you are heavier than ten mice.
So ‘to skate’ is ‘to sink’.

What Would You Do For The One That You Love

What would you do for the one that you love
Would you fly to the moon?
Would you swim across the sea?
Would you walk to the ends of the earth?
What I would do for the one that i love
Is not fly or swim or walk
I would lay down my life for the love of my life
If one day they asked me to.
But until that day comes
I will fly with my love
I will walk with my love
And i will swim a big ocean
With my one true love.

Abandon To Physical Sensation

And I swam and swam and dived
into the waves and rode them out
and tumbled about and became a
water sprite and rolled over and
over in the shallow water and ran
into the waves, splashing up a
wide new ball-room dress, beautiful
circles of diamond glitter in the sun,
diving into the cool water again and
changing into a dolphin, water my
natural medium, experiencing sensory
ecstasy, swimming fast and deep,
feeling the delicious fatigue, turning
over and becoming one with the foam,
bubbling with the wave crest, in total
abandon to physical sensation…
