It Was Invasion

Satish Verma

How will you measure the wide 
gulf between words and hyphens? 
The apostrophes will give you 
restrain and isolation. 

The predators will sit and 
wait for the fallouts. The night 
was your domain to start 
sinning; in erasing the numbers. 

The midnight grief during the 
assault of moon. Were you ready 
to unmask the hidden inter- 
polator? The merciless thrush? 

Candidiasis? It was eating 
away your smell, your taste 
and moments of glimpses 
of the fire in the groins.
