You dig in your heels,
by Satish Verma
when blood spills
under the skin.
Refuses to go, the homeless moon,
I will call the snow to cover the sod.
through the stray thoughts, you
pick up the threads, to knit―
a scarf for the poem.
Body born, a planet
breaks, in your epic. The ivory
shaving will make a white gold.
The birth pangs start in natal pain.
