Umid Ali writes


It is possible to cheat eyes with eyes, 
If something reproves it obviates. 
A tongue easily lies once tongue
Overcomes the protection of teeth.

But how can you escape your soul? 
Where are its thirty two teeth? 
If soul deludes, it is – forever captive, 
Its lies are the trails from the needles.
