Reliance – a poem by Sanjeev Sethi


Yesterday informed me of a morrow
with no sunlight. In this ill-timed 
ingathering duds outplace dividends. 
Artistic aura negates the course for me. 
When the unexpected crosses my curve, 
I sift: crevasses are a part of the sketch 
of my inhabitancy. Slights leave me 
loose. His lambency counters the cue.
