Steer by Sanjeev Sethi

(1)

Let me caress my concerns
with the brush of soft colors,
let me create a mosaic of
memory that will keep me
mild and measured.

(2)

In your eyes I see ruin, may be
repose and release, your voice
has a fugleman’s alarum. We
think externals navigate it for
us. We err all the time.
