Snobbish Indifference

Stolen glances 

missing beats 

those translucent

moments, porous 

breaths evaporated 

in cheap sooty puffs 

of gas-station

cigarettes, lungs 

choked of highway

psychedelics, motel

caffeine to measure

vaccant hours of 

your casual neglect, 

I measure from

puff to puff,

smoke to smoke

and make most of

those empty

hours, all while

gazing at your 

sinful lips,

marveling the

arched Sicilian 

nose where rests 

that snobbish  

indifference…

Rebel

Trudging through the still corridors 
An eerie silence filled the hollow air
Empty classrooms, phantom voices
Spotted the broken corner seat,

My permanent abode once, it
Still bears the marks of my shrine
Disinterested drew rough images 
Wrote long verses on insignificant life

Cold stares of teachers who never care
One Ms. A always looked disparagingly 
A look of disdain, threw the poetry book
On my face, a roar of laughter around 

Now as I walk heavily through the grim
Cubicles, the quiet hallway, in retrospect
I Realize, the true cause of feelings,
Suppressed inside me for decades

The silent rebel in me took birth in these
Grey dull classrooms, devoid of any 
Human touch, an insurgent, exiled in 
My body, a non existent blob of flesh 

A faceless creature lost in the sea of 
Students called only by roll number five
Humiliated by such an indifferent education 
I vowed never to return back .
