I, TAHERELECTRIC POET


I

Taher
Born Third of March
Three point forty a.m.
Maternity Home in Mumbai
Blue skin.

II

Blue skin, red eyes
Thin fingers, tight, slim, red, sweet lips
Glassy look, shrill cry - Don't touch, I am live wire!
Live, charged wire I am, I warn my dad, and yet he comes near ...
Zip zap! he twists

III

He twists,
And momma screams:
Good Lord! What is all this?
I Taherelectric just laugh ...
Heh Heh!
