Statecraft
by Satish Verma
Bookmark and Share
  Delta. I was the fourth child. 
The delta connection of a 
triangular love. No blues. 
Only cottony belly. 

My copper coins. I want to save 
them for making talismans. 
My arms are entwined like 
a python around the neck of a medusa. 

That hairy push of a trident. 
The stinging tentacles. The 
polyp was enlarging. Now the 
snake was shedding the skin. 

Statesmen. They change their colour 
like chameleon. Prehensile 
tail trailing behind the witchcraft
of black goddess.
