Poem-2

Shridhara C.R.

 

I have seen this creature

Licking dust

Moving

It barely rises from the hard earth in a bad weather

 

Sometimes the triangular head is turned

To check

Whether the black armour still shines.

Scaly tail raised in silly satisfaction

The yellow eyes seek some new green

 

I have seen it

Climbing one of those soft breasts and suck

The sweet milk

Careful not to spill too much poison.

It crawls and curls on the white belly and

Pushed into nightmares

By those deep breaths.

 

I have seen

The angry head rising

With those venomous fangs

The broken earth hurt by the cold blood

Pumping fast

The whole body bending to strike hard

Before the mirror.

I have seen it.
