Prageeta Sharma


I sat here for a long time and dreamt
that all the narrow platforms or the studies
into human species were enlightening,
but we all miss the where-with-all of 
wreaking pure havoc in the displacement 
of focused lives. I wanted to stay a child
until I wanted desperately to be an adult,
in both cases, I wanted to be fun-loving.
Hey chickpea, where was that place we all
went to for Chinese food? When can I be
informal and alluring and adaptable
for consumption as well as a tropical 
American for you to hold back.
