A collaboration over too much coffee.

Jealous Coffee

Your whispers
(must be suggestive)
Make her smile.

Your breath
(fans her hair)
Is closer to her.

Your arm
(around her waist)
Guides her across the street.

My tears
(behind the big coffee cup )
smudge old coffee stains on the table.

Manisha, this reads as if one is watching
a video clip of the pre-sound era in good
ole cinematography. Brilliant piece of sharp
narrative in poetic form.

Cheers !

If you continue writing the way you do, I think you will be counted amongst the best modern Indian writers very soon. You make me want to work on the poetry collection with even more vigour.

Max has already given such an apt comment. Its a script--poignant scenes written poetically.

Jealous coffee has company in the form of Jealous Geets - jealous of your talent ;-) Just Kidding.
The other's have said it all - I don't think I can add anything...great stuff!
