No Strings Attached. A Poem by Aparna Pathak

“Give me a break!”
It says often.
It’s already tough to stand on same place
for years, fixed by trashy threads
that keeps on digging the soil
beneath, more day after day;
and call it strengthening.
Just hover around
as decorations and possessions
without being attached.
Twigs are overloaded.
Dont suck.
Feel free to roam around but
come back , when in evenings
folks pass by appreciating affluence.
