To Quill the Mocking World

Do You ?


Poetry, Anuragdasi Patel

You shabby mosaic of glass

Do you see yourself clearly ?

 

Yes, I can meet my own eyes.

 

Rising on tides with your mighty masthead

Do you sail with the wind ?

 

No, I direct my sail.

 

Mass of paperwhite skin

Do you believe in ghosts ?

 

Yes, they always disappear.

 

Muse of a thousand words

Do your scars hurt ?

 

No, I perennially bleed misery.

 

Watcher of the world

Do you read them, faces, well ?

 

Yes, they’re as black as white.

 

Martyr of heart wrenching wars

Do you smell your flowers ?

 

No, I never get them.

 

Waking up another day again

Do you get sound sleep ?

 

Yes, the morgue keeps quiet.

 

You beautifully broken thing

Do you believe in magic ?

 

No, but only it’s right in your eyes.
