A Poem by Nothing Personal

1

At crossroads and salient islands,

Where the normal laws of attraction does not work

A faint shriek from somewhere close by

Who’s that?

A familiar face-

Foreign syllables floating on pretty faces

A fish definitely knows how long it can stay in water

Or out of it

Functionality of fins and gills;

The possibility of infinity from the swimming pool

Is vast and momentary.

 

2

The thriving poet was always a romantic first,

Unanswered questions remain lyrical possibilities

Between a mathematical yes and a no;

Evolution is overrated and underachieving

I still feel impermissible emotions

Impermissible by only norms and standards

(Not on weeknights after a bottle of malbec)

Yet, within me, within deep chasms

I see clearly

And I am at least partially right.

 

3

Compositions on a Thursday night

Your hair and your lips are enticing

I create willfully

I destroy magically

Intoxicated words affect

If only you had spoken then

And chose not to be silent

Oh, I’ve met so many versions of you

And yet, I’ve met none of you.

 

4

That building where you lived last year

That solemn whisper

I had interpreted so many versions of you

From that one incomplete conversation

It felt we strived towards the same obsolescence

After all

 

5

Dreary night, dark night

Silent night, my night

Even if there are no answers

There are a bunch of constellations

And a lot of hours

Before it’s all over between you and me

Before it’s all over

Before it’s all over between me and

The girl I haven’t met yet.
