Talkative Ceiling Fan

I pick up speed and dissipate

Heat that swelters rivulets in arm pits.

Newspapers acquire life when I spin

A dervish in ecstasy, what is settled rustles,

Hair oiled loosens, aromas spread, stenches disperse.

I am an occupation when television blurs

You watch me flat on your back  before your mind detours

Again for immersions and diversions, tut, tut, voyeur that I am.


and when a boy ties a rope and breaks his neck

i am an accomplice- cliff, roof top, lover’s point

a bridge with no other side.

Your take....
