i am vikash shivram.

i tried thinking
of a better name
for the blog and myself
staring into the screen
for a good
half an hour

a name
fit for a poet
a name
that conjures up the image
of an old
worn out
sitting in
his shabby room
writing drinking smoking
and sleeping
angry at the world
and himself

but in vain

for i’m just a
domesticated straywright
with an unpoetic name
and words
of my own

i am vikash shivram.
