1-6-13: “UNTETHERED” (© KPKeelan)


Most of the time

I am adrift-


aimlessly perambulating

through empty landscapes

devoid of meaning.


Expecting nothing,

nothing is what I get.



to be a part of something


than my insignificant self,

but my entreaties

fall on deaf ears.


‘Ho-hum’, says the World.

‘You are okay.’

‘Nothing special.’

‘So-so at best!’


In a winner-take all game,

I am not deemed a winner.


Man overboard!


in churning storm-tossed seas…


The sharks are circling

there’s blood in the wind

and I’m treading water


waiting to drown.
