Two Poems By Sanjeev Sethi

Mixed Bag
  
Beaucoup palpations 
made valuable
in my think tank. 
Dipsosis needs to be doused: 
to keep it à cheval. 
This seems off base 
in a generation when orgasm 
has a public face. Minutia 
and images of lover are laid out. 
  
A few hours later 
epiphanies on the twilight zone: 
suck face and solace. 
Nival
  
In wintertime: 
cast my heart 
as your hibernaculum.  
Notion of breathing: 
blood-warm drafts sacralize 
our deduction.
 
Pronounced ego, blunted 
by egret’s refusal to bow 
to whims of your 35mm.
I posed in affectations 
of your art. I glean retrofitting 
is an ongoing process.
  
Passengers all: 
let magnanimity
mow the meadow.
