Sanjeev Sethi – Seeds

By  | 

Seeds

(1)
Winters–
other‘s wear woolens
I wear words.

(2)
Thinking of you, I scrawled
a sentence: velocity
of words gridlocked.

(3)
Unilateralism:
anti timber
of togetherness.

(4)
Engaged mind is charming
head always hustling:
horrible to hobnob with.

(5)
Written words seek
perch in posterity.
Extent is uncertain.

(6)
Fresh wounds sting:
older ones lose bite.
Growth?

(7)
Arrogance:
flux of inferiority
in its incipience.

(8)
Peel what you want.
Scaling will spare me
of future strains.

(9)
You stalk my mind.
Which cop station
do I call on?
