We read the sticky notes on her wall today,
“What separation technique is used
To separate pain from life?”
“How does a fish who lost its gills survive?
Does it befriend the tides or surrender to
The fangs of the waters?”
“As a man releases sperms and knows not
Which will fertilize his wife’s ovum, a writer
knows not which piece will fertile his egg
Of fame or fortune. For some, it is their first,
Others, their last- a suicide note”
“Why is my body home to flames, to fire
And everything hot?”
“There’s a difference between light and fire.
[One is a gentle glow while the other is a
Wildling, clawed and undomesticated]”
“If a woman’s body be burgled, who’ll fix
The broken window without mocking her?
I think it’s better to lube the hinges with tears
And take sides with silence, it mocks no one.”

The streets are empty. There is as much fear as there is oxygen in the air.
The prices of foodstuffs have been hiked and even hope is not cheap at this time.
Still, like these flowers, you can take a sip of the sun rays without wilting.
