I, TAHERELECTRIC POET
Born Third of March
Three point forty a.m.
Maternity Home in Mumbai
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
And momma screams:
Good Lord! What is all this?
I Taherelectric just laugh ...
