Caesura

 
By Rajani Kanth
 

Come, Let us

Fast

The Holy Time’s

before us:

And this

Moment

May not last –

Come, Let us

Fast

*

All the

Portents

Warn us

No Returning

To what is

Past –

*

The Feast

Was Exorbitant:

Cakes and Ale

lie in the

Waters cast –

So , come,

let us fast

*

The Antic

Gods do

rave and fume

Their Patience

will not last

*

Music’s

gone

cacophonous:

Dancers,

giddy, spin

too fast –

Night moon’s

hid

in storm clouds

dark

Party’s over,

Done ,

and Past

It’s Time:

To Pray,

and Fast

*

We

frittered

The Good

Earth’s

Bounty –

a Largesse,

Free,

and Vast

Oblivious,,

In Euphoria

That Nature –

She Bats

Last –

*

So, Expiating

Wantonness

In Exculpating

Piety –

Come, Let us

Fast
