Fences

 

now
as then

we draw lines
build and rebuild
fences
with new wire
cut of the same steel
forged in
new factories

still owned and run
by warped minds

  • Snow Angel by Neetu

    I shaped you in the snow
    the last time it descended
    from the misty sky above

  • Between the Lines by Neetu

    a comma, a pause—
    maybe even a full stop
    heaves its way
    between the lines

  • Endurance by Neetu

    a feeble flame
    does not illuminate
    my path on this
    dark night
