demon

demon

kill me, quickly
before i do you
oh yes,
yes, demon am i
but then,
so are you!

idea

its an idea
of an idea
that is shooting upwards
very gradually. welcome signs
are ready to embrace
and to take it
to destinations -
unknown
unreached
unfathomed
unthought.
idea
a short gestation
and fast realisation
pushes it along
the road
to its destination - so far
unsought
unwanted
unrequired
unaided.

anyone anyway

yudhi-bw
he doesn't
call me papa anymore
not that i am complaining
for i always thought
a child should be free
to address anyone anyway

he still
calls her mama every time
not that i am complaining
for i always thought
a child should be free
to address anyone anyway

he calls
my younger son siddharth
even though we nick him as sid
it makes me wonder
why a child is free
to address anyone anyway
