Of A Moon And A Lost King

Of a moon and a lost king

written by: Sunil Sharma

On the rough edges
of a dark-blue sky

hangs a curved slice
of a pimply moon
one thirds hidden

the milky lips describing
an arc
in the wide heavens

and—
grinning below at the
earthlings
like the fool to a vain king

now wandering in the storm
unhinged

his thoughts rambling
like a bulky post-modern novel
there with some best sellers
in a closed room.
