Freeing Love

You shall not cheat. I will

not be judged by Sahu the grocer.

I do. Not on earth or water

or gauzy winds in azure skies

But I do. So there.

My open upturned palms

I can look at you now

I can look at you

now in this winter of the hashish fragrance of the chhatim tree

That is everywhere.

That has swept away the cotton smell of my mother

And the milky scent of my woman

And the spunky odour of the sea

That trails the dark women of my madness

I can look at you now

That the silk cotton tree is naked

And through its branches

I can see

your crystalline solitude.
