Pistachios

If people were as good as pistachios
They would be under threat…
That is why people are not as good as pistachios…
So that no one and nothing would digest them…
Like pistachios…
Cats might want to eat them pistachios, or people…
Throwing them at your window would make no sense,
Pistachios would break
but the window closed would remain …
for there are millions of windows
within the same windowpane…
shut… you do not need to see the world anymore,
for you have decided that you know it all…
Assumptions totemised as truths
scribbled on the window towards world…
and you, with your pistachios, only yours,
stuck away from all because you know
the other cats don’t like pistachios…
you know them all…
When you have finished, you may ask them stupid cats –
yet cats that you KNOW:
“I HOPE YOU DIDN’T WANT ANY PISTACHIOS!”…
(read: I know you didn’t want any pistachios)
and throw the empty shells by the window
to those who don’t want to be as good as pistachios…


The Human Monument of Pain

The seconds of love get entangled
Timidly within the whirlpool of infinity…
The echoes of life resound shyly
Within the chasm of ethereal existence...
From all the shattered loves of flesh
Some ashes, left in Time’s fireplace,
Were dispelled by ‘S/HE’ while angry
To see so many fecund creatures
Lurking around with a choked soul –
Metamorphoses of some naked dreams,
Devoid of reason or feelings,
Only abandoned to passion…
They fall into oblivion – the seconds of love –
Like white magnolias dying
At the hand of a jealous gale…
Only death turns the saddening passion
In bliss and freedom from the worldly dungeon…
The vain loves of the body
Are carved in the Monument of Pain…
