Keep

by Venkat

drank and I drank
waves upon wave
roar upon roar
hand upon hand

stopped, it stopped
ears slipped off ears
eyes off eyes
hand off the hand

sank and I sank
waves upon wave
roar upon roar
feeling off the feeling

a hollow cave
was my shape
for tigers and toads
songs for ceiling
ducks for sailing

a vase I made
sunk flawless
with nothing to give
and nothing to take
in desires to keep
