real

Coz I’m real

Short of breath.
Wasted mind.
Mine-dweller.
Porcupine.

Creeping like a lizard.
Gazing like Wildebeest.
My mental sewage.
Vanishing winter.

Meditating.
Pretending.
Intending.
Modest little fella.

Humiliated.
Hated.

My soul feels bitten and spat out.
And it’s good coz I’m real.

Varun Rajagopalan.
