Come twilight - BEJAN DARUWALLA
Shree Ganeshaya Namah
By Bejan Daruwalla
The surgeon's knife is broken and silent
Medicines, pills, injections have gone home to sleep.
Come twilight the old woman has been waiting for you a long, long time
Like a fisher - woman with her man out on the high seas.
she has been waiting to show you the scars
On the secret scroll of her soul
And never you mind her virgin blush!
Come on tip - toe twilight,
Waiting for you she has gone to sleep.
Look on her face, softly, twilight,
And night shall descend on you too!
