“Intentions” – Sunil Sharma

Intentions

Words.

Not mere strings, weightless, swimming in the space randomly.

But fatal.

Lacerate.

Wound.

Scar.

Kill… like the hemlock administered one day in 399 BC to a 70-year-old that had displeased the gods and a city famous for democracy!

Words.

Glow like pearls..occasionally.

Uplift.

Make you cross oceans

Scale summits

Blaze old trails buried in history.

Tell me, dear.

Would you now wound/maim and kill me?

Or, Heal/revive an ageing body?

Or, Murder old conventions

And re-create newer narratives?
