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

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


becoming forgotten

for a personal dream

that turns out to be


this is where it hurts.

Leonard Dabydeen, Author of Watching You, A Collection of Tetractys Poems, Xlibris, 2012)
