Treasure Island

Satish Verma

(5-6-1935)

*On 100th Birthday of Alan Turing


Why were you collecting the
people all around?
Unsure of yourself on the
ambiguity of an inquest?

I remained unhappy my
whole life and left the
bed after chemical-castration,
in hurry.

In hindsight inside the
nightmare room, what was
left to imagination? The
half-eated apple?

Hold my hand. I am coming
with you, to settle
my account with god, for
creating people of this type.




The purple spillage 24 June 2012
was ready to play with-
fire, for estranged lover,

inventing a fake enemy.
What if I die again and
again for you.

It begs the identity of a
black moon, perhaps to reflect
the stuttering homophobia.

Crossing the time zones, searching
the old snow, in the cracks of
volcanic rocks, you kiss a clove bud.

In anger, I receive your ashes,
when it was raining blue.
A baby died in a crib, unattended.


*Code breaking genius, founder of computer science, who allegedly committed suicide on 7th June 1954.

Poem of the Day

poet Walt Whitman

ARM’D year! year of the struggle!
No dainty rhymes or sentimental love verses for you, terrible year!
Not you as some pale poetling, seated at a desk, lisping cadenzas
