Devi Loves A Drink
by Archna Sahni
Bookmark and Share
  Devi loves a drink.
She loves to quaff a pint or two
before she sits astride
her roaring mate.

No one knows intoxication
like she does. Only those
who have knocked at death's door
and danced in the graveyard
of their desires, will glimpse
in the mirror of their mind
the slow reddening of their eyes
as if they had swallowed
the juice of a thousand sunsets
or been whisked up a peepal tree
and kissed by a yakshini.

She who rides the wind
and has etched the secrets
of the universe on every leaf
with her breath, does not
like to be cradled in a swan
or hold a book in one of her arms.

O yes, Devi loves a drink.
How ill-placed she would feel
with our middle-class mores
if we invited her to a party
and the waiter carrying glasses
of whiskey sailed past her
to ask the gentleman standing
by her side, 'Sir, would you
like a drink?'
