Of Cousins & A Lover by Sanjeev Sethi


Some dead or damaged, some there.
The concatenation of cousins:
a mesh valid for memories.
One or two are sturdy but stolid.
The infirm are with us.


This potage is my libation.
By washing it in the bidet
I will rinse you till appetition
solicits my attention. Your
place is in my palm.
