The uncontrolled running of rain leaves
no record like a lamster: sunshine towels
it. Let’s locate traces of truth in trueness.
As when happiness is harping on my riff.
Instances like these I peep inwards to seek
bounties. Everything else is a blur. Like
how it is with the machismo of monsoons.
One has to move beyond a blurb.
