Heterochromatic – a poem by Sanjeev Sethi

Heterochromatic

Hard-heartedness
is a malediction.
Let us locate the lens
to grief that has no lexicon.
No legs to stand.
Nobody to lean on:
a wail no one catches.

To cloak behind
hauteur of ratings
is a way to camouflage failings.
Let’s be on the frontline.
Let our wares be marked
by myriad forces
for their true color to flash.
