Of Promises, Markets and Memories

written by:  Debasish Parashar



Better not try
To impress
With your sorrows
Life has few hollows
To be empty

Your promises are leaves
In a forest deciduous
Fertile in fall
Otherwise green

If memories were governed
By demand and supply
Market forces I mean
All geniuses could be ordinary
All histories linear
since they are not
Meanings can be metaphors.
