Ask not my country

Or state.

 

Ask not my trade

Or job.

 

Ask not my tongue

Or region.

 

Ask not the colour

Of my blood.

 

Ask not what i  like

Or dislike.

 

Ask not what i dream

Or pen.

 

Ask not if i have

An orchard or a flower garden.

 

All are irrelevant!

 

Ask what i eat

And what i not.

 

Ask what i wear

And what i don’t.

 

Ask if i a visitor

To holy lands.

 

And if not satisfied

Ask the last important one,

“What’s your name?”

 

Now put me in a bracket

And act with authority.

It's all about the unsung , nameless men and women around us. I try to portray them through my tales. I praise their undying suffering and immaculate beauty. And their resilience to life's vicissitudes, oddities, and crudities I admire. They are my soulmates who inspire me to look beyond the visible, the known, the common facade of the educated and the intellectuals.

Praise for my poem "Elderly Men Two"

"A finely honed observational piece recording the minutiae of everyday life. Rendered with the author’s customary poetic aplomb suffused with a Borges like quality of the mythic."
