Ananya S Guha

Never Have I …

Never have I seen these rains
in mirrors of desire
or on the waylaid streets
or in the visage of a beggar boy
I have seen these rains plummet
down on rain washed hills
I have seen the rains whisked
away by runaway, embattled streets
and the pines look askance.

Never have I seen these rains
tepid, pale and wan
coming in torrents these rains
take away time and stupor
my langurous ways.

Never have I seen these rains
awakening anger
and a fetish lust.
