Itai Oscar


Dead Vision Resurrected


I walk around the graveyard at a snail's pace
Trying to figure out where I had buried my vision
A pick in one hand and a shovel on the other
The day I buried my vision is still vivid in my mind
a friend's influence had led to its sickness and later death

I read epitaphs on other tombstones
I also noticed that there were some fresh graves
Mourners were gathered around virgin graves
I located the grave I was looking for
The epitaph boldly proclaimed, 'Itai Oscar's Vision 2006-2010'

It took me couple of minutes of digging vigorously
To reach what now looked like a coffin
After removing the lid, I realised that maggots had done a splendid job

I rearranged the skeletal remains on the ground
Can these bones live?
A faint inward voice gave me assurance
'If the structure is there, then resurrection is inevitable'
I became aglow with hope

Now the vision is alive
Now the vision is running
Now the vision has produced after its own kind
Dead visions can be resurrected...

WINE comes in at the mouth
And love comes in at the eye;
