Dedicated to Ganesh


I wait.

An expanse of sand


Sand points burning my expectancy

Sweat droplets embrace a screen

Time stands

I alone.

I watch a flicker of life

It strengthens

It becomes a flame

And it burns.

ASL Please?

You wish honey

I reply.

And then

A difference hangs heavy

calling out to a savage soul

Slakes its thirst

With the words Midnight’s Children.
