Back  I  Portal  I

Sundara Ramaswamy


Sighting the snake
you picked up the stone
I became the snake

Sighting the sword
you bent the bow
I became the scabbard

When the elephant in rut came
you screamed and raised hell
I trained being pendulum
in the tail

Later one day
at the cross lanes
I slipped, fell
and died

You died many a death
and survived
Living on and on
I perished
