Cold comfort – Promote Yourself

musstang
The general hum
The scattered crumbs
Of conversations
Half heard
The random muzak
Music
Depending how I hear
Interpret
Relevant or not
To how I feel
Bright flashes
Of little girl dresses
Amongst the grey white
And blue
Please feel free
To ask the staff
To change the air
Conditioning
For your comfortAre they God?

If only

Verbal Tics – Promote Yourself

verbaltics

Bloody times off cloud number nine
Love is fine till all is in line

Shop and drain yourself again and again
Cry and blab la till you are insane

Save yourself off the time ticking
Clap your hands for that’s all is left

You are just uselessssssssss

Bloody all bloody off just the high fi time
Life is slipping oh merry o dine

Niceties and high tea a thing of the past
Now slap yourself off the oblivion part

Dance and sing for this is the last of being mean
Remember, you can never be onto anyone specific

You are just useless

Spark off the stick now lights a match
It circles now into a black o patch

Medicines stupid are all the same
When you pop them all, you crackle a game

Flame and death match into one
And you were just lost like the previous ones

I am just useless

~Alka Ranjan (India)

A star was born

The screams became louder and louder

And he didn’t arrive until the 25th hour

I can’t believe it I feel so proud

He looks like both of us but he’s got my mouth,

When I first found out I was in  shock

But how worth it he was, such good looks,

A good boy hardly a sound

Two days early and over 8 pounds,

Skin to skin he lay on her chest

The very 1st feed had been off the breast
