Ram Krishna Singh, India

Yellow lemons

still hanging after the storm

sunny backyard


sun rising late

slow arrival of winter

feverish warmth


weaving webs

between branches and leaves

autumn spiders


fit of sneezes

no winter allergy

thinking of sex


fingers feel

decaying fireflies

in lamplight


white light

dressing off her shoulders

musky scent up


prayer book

covering the glass—

his last drink


noon sun-

yellow blouse

on her wet back



straining through the trees:

tea in full moon


waking up

gloves ready for the catch-

unclaimed light



a vanishing guest:




fractured biorhythm

deity distance


Sunday’s lunar light

shining into the deepest-

my shadow self


stands behind the door

in pleasing nudity

a woman in hurry


I didn’t want to stare

her derriere lacks




in the cleft of the rock



float over the hill

the autumn circles of smoke-

her long hair streaming


a quick brush

with snake in the fence:

plucking flowers


December dusk

firy cleavage on roadside

breathless coalfield
