Title: One

'One day at a time'
she puckered
clichéd mouth
She should be so smug
White coat and matching teeth
Satisfied member
of the caring clan
Holier than
thou

Cow

Beneath Hell
here
Descriptors can’t
describe

Prescribe

Nowhere to be
Nowhere to hide
Shitting in public
Who conjured this?
Therapy?

Nice ONE

Japa Kusuma Sankasham
Kashyapeyam Mahadyuthim
Thamognam Sarvapapagnam
Pranathosmi Divakaram

Let’s internalize

ONE’s tend to multiply
and for those remaining
there’s no explaining
Why

Don’t cry

Bitch

Twitch

Imagine you’re the ONE

Alone
Maybe in the gutter
Maybe with some nutter
taking you in hand
Don’t they understand

Singledom is NOT
a disease

Just ONE portion please
You got it

Just the ONE
Solo break.
Lonesome night
Hard to fake
a friend

Embarrassment sure
don’t end here
Must be queer
or single

I too
could mingle
True

Japa Kusuma Sankasham
Kashyapeyam Mahadyuthim
Thamognam Sarvapapagnam
Pranathosmi Divakaram

ONE Creator?
powerful primal generator
forceful, obstinate, lonely
The constant longer
The if only
ONE

Massive ego
I am the ONE
Big chance taker
Bring it on
Determined
ONE track mind

'You could meet someone'
he smiled
Sickly-sweet, destined to rile
'Just relax; let’s talk about it'

Shit

ONE
Ruled by sun
Sunny outlook
radiant, bright?
Not so sure
now that
it’s night
all day

Self actualized
ready to rule
Determined
intense
nobody’s fool
Individual

Residual
ONE

Shiny surface
vulnerable within
Stubborn
Defensive
Apprehensive

ONE

Needs to channelize
Maybe wise

ONE
never knows?

Don’t personalize

ONE
and
only
