Perspective by Neetu

Pers[ective | Neetu | A Slice of Orange


You say life is not a poem

or a story—

I ask, “What is it then?”

“Real life”, you say.

 Of course, you know best.

You spend your days


life’s losses, its gains,


how much time is left,

working out

logistics while you lie in bed.

Real life gives you pain,

brings a scowl to your face—

you add and subtract,

make no mistakes,

and I,

I just watch

the shadows twitch and yawn

on that wall

across the window

through which the moon

winks at me, sly-faced—

“I’ll be fine”, I say.
