Geometry of Love


We share the space in a circle
with the people my mom called Square.
She lives beyond and here, and we
live in the intestine of a serpent.
Sometimes we know where we live.
We call the reptile Ouroboros. This morning
I dialled my wife. “Come sharp.” I urged.
She said, “Tears magnify desire.
Here near my maternal house
a choke berry tree hosts the fatigue
of evening’s avis.” I uttered, “Oh!”
I added a trivia, “In Mumbai lives a Birdman.
He saves vultures.” The circle of the sky echoed
my words. The path is covered with feathers.
We have been having this conversation
for two or three, may be four generations.
