Not Happening. A Poem by Ananya S Guha

Lovely the way it happens
lovelier the way things don’t happen
in an acrobatic murmur
I saw dissent in a storm
a cup in wither in the morn
the battering of life is simply
an aroma, things happening
so, bolster fashion
there is in it the mythic,
the epistolary, then the
giants will look at the other way
a whodunit? a whodunit of the
Don’t know that surprises melt into
laughter, then anger
I am a bit composite now
after writing a poem.
They do not know it is laden
with color and tears
drinking a few beers
and the way this happens
actually, come to think of it
in slow sterile responses
( punctuated with heavy breathing)
should not.
