An Empty Page
by Sarika Jaswani

Barble
caught in an
earthen flask

I believe        I carry
wet      weight      As
sullen thoughts        ritz & warble

clamor under my hair
vehement to be spelt out
on my empty canvas
to be
upheld
exhibited
validated

as I voice
A trade        in

currency of liquid ink
on reliable spaces
                                   for calm
to stay between my eyes

adamant muses     sojourn
lodge in dark spaces
capricious they enfold

       whisper

      only faint

       fade
and leave…

I am still waiting
With a dry pen
       On
an empty page

PAINTING: One Way by Irma Blank (1991).
