Literary Yard

Search for meaning


In a condom commercial
when a former porn star sensuously frolics
on a sandy beach
a band of moralists, allergic to strawberries,
stand in unison to dutifully condemn
the repugnant acts that might result in
more rapes down the Indian streets…

Touch the conservative pulse of the Indian society
And hordes of primitive-minded friends behind you
to help you court controversies
to help you stay in news
to help you manifest
flimsy care for the society–
which needs birth control
which needs HIV control

Amid this wilderness,
how will the beach strawberries reach our bedrooms?
