Aphorisms from The Border / Elancharan Gunasekaran

voices in the wind stand where you are and speak your name


one hand gives enslaved to karma the other hand receives


lightning lips split


where no man has gone before the afterlife and lived to tell his tale


arrogant bulldozer showing off its prize kill mauled banyan tree


I’ll tell you how to run a country you can start by tearing down your walls


 through the lens scratched crescent moon cat-play with Leo


stealthily unlocked front door girls’ night smell of booze and sex


stare-off between crow and beggar leftovers grew wings


in our “normal” world a mad man sits calmly reading a book
