Sanjeev Sethi: 1 Poem Published

Poem by Sanjeev Sethi (India)

Published in The Ofi Press issue 49






I accepted your allograph not

because it was truth-telling:

trust is my insignia on love.

Potentate of my being. Innit?

Kitchenalia is key to home.

Our dupion didn’t spell this

out. During a silken phase

every stir leaves a line.

Splitville has sharpened 

me with a never-ending 

series. It’s automagical.
