The Actor

This post is dedicated to Dr.Shriram Lagoo for his play ‘Natasamrat

Why do you,
around yourself, a universe spin?
Why do you,
upon your angry brow, give birth,
to tragedy’s kin?

Clenching fists,
Shuddering cheeks,
Blooming mists,
of the darkest keeps.

What have you?
In your eyes so red,
What have you?
In your thunderous voice,
They torment me in my screaming bed,
And the life in my warring choice.

How they stomp, you drunken feet,
How they lurch and last they meet,
Did they stop? Did they fail?
The leary top, the heavy ale.
