See How Names

May 1, 2012 at 4:32 pm (Dominic Alapat, Poetry)


find your tongue

faces find light

see as long as we breathe

the world gives us company

a childhood memory

a man

walking in the verandah

lolling in the afternoon sun

or a sofa

in someone’s home

sleeping in the shade

see these lives become a part of you

blink and everything

comes flooding into the mind

like rain

like these dreams in neem

when the sparrows burst forth

and sing away the blue.

– Dominic Alapat
