Sitting around a circle talking philosophy

#1 Post by SivaRamanathan » 20 Oct 2012, 21:30

Very distant intro in the Silver Duck Hall
every member rains words
food / foot care
washing the feet, Krishna sucking his own toe
doing naivedya to leprosy feet, licking the pus
finally I realize it is not food but foot.

Copy copy cat cat, preserve rights as, copy right
TT talked about the gore in your flash
Steel spiders becoming Narasimhan
cleaving the sternum with eight metal claws
two pairs of hands to hold the vulva open
Doctors invent angles.

All my poetry is about memory
I wake up in this circle
though my vocabulary falters.

Sivakami Velliangiri
