The Swell

 

When the hominids

who evolved into sapiens

took to an upright position

and bipedalism,

their front extremities were freed

to build space stations & quantum computers,

roller skis & racing bikes,

Like A Rolling Stone & In Search of Lost Time

 

The world is dancing its brutal elegance

from the paper

up my pen

into my brain,

where I sit, cross-legged,

rocked on the swell

 

Today is an open silence,

ornated

with Hariprasad Chaurasia's flute

in Rag Darbari Kannada
