Three Poems by Sanjeev Sethi

 



Anchor

 

Innocence in eyes nourished

the love songs your breath

scrawled all over me.

They emit our essence.

In their entirety

we exist.

 

Other than that we have trucked

to other terrains.

When there is a call

to cherish heartbeats:

I set up

our shop.



Palliative

 

When options pack it in,

in addled position

mesh with your Maker.

Souse in His spirit:

the reposing will reappear.

 

The purity of service

is proportionate

to the quality of calm.

Let the sceptics leer.

This isn’t for them.

 

Correctives follow

the converted.

Speculative triggers don’t

reside in this domain.

This is the burrow of believers.

 


Antilogy

 

Some are accoutered

in coarseness:

checks in with excess.

Tune in to spot

erroneousness of ego.

 

We bum rap others 

what we’re most likely

to be censured for.

Along these lines whirls

gilly of worldliness.
