Verbal Makeovers

written by: Sunil Sharma

@drsunilsharma

 

Conversations
everyday
rusted
banal

undergo sudden change in skin and texture

when words
uncoil and each
converses with a master

A Pound

Neruda

Or Eliot

only afterwards---
yellow-faced words
become rosy complexioned

getting suffused with youthful energy
from such magical encounters!

 

NOTE FROM THE AUTHOR:

The necessity of art in a market economy. Lends vitality to conversations and uplifts.
