On life and its vagaries

The man in chain

leave a comment »


In a zoo (Was I dreaming?)

I saw a man in chains

He was a vain man, a gone man

Yet a very tame-man


He sketches himself as something that stretches-

Into others, into the gulf

Into the heart of Asia

Into progress


Stop drawing, I tell him

You are just a man in chain

You can’t conduct yourself like that

It’s ludicrous


But would he hear?

Would anybody hear?

Women untie and retie their hair

Vassals go and buy tea for their masters

Soldiers prowl in parking lots

There are watchers and the watched……


The dream ended

But I wonder do such dreams ever end?
