P C K Prem writes


It is quite possible not to give
an arty definition
to human relations
in an unsafe millennium
that tells Capital
to organize relations.

And so a trend of causality lies
in an age of live-in relations,
in a berth-sharing tie-up.
It is a despicable running
of kindred links,
of no consequence
as coins flaunt.

Men are just tiny toys
in a cane basket
and women force hands down
to stand equal.
It is a glorified importing
of unfamiliar sensibility
into the fabric that is local.

It is a talk of pain
and nostalgia of men
living outside
and yet speaking of rebirth.
