Where Does It Hurt ? (Readings from the book: The Indelible Red Stain by Dr. Mohan Ragbeer)

August 23, 2015

Look me in the eyes

where I can see pain

here is where fear

builds up like plaque

around a wisdom tooth

it comes and goes

hurt and trauma dance

in congruence

fledgling Marxism

like a fetish

idolize the mind

Indian jahaji

diminishing

becoming forgotten

for a personal dream

that turns out to be

nothing

this is where it hurts.
