bURNing - Vasvi Gupta

Maybe we don’t really know enough.

Maybe all the anger 

that oozes out of our corporeal canisters 

stems only from the pinhole-visions of wrongfulness 

that we have had access to.

Maybe our emotions are overweight

our words, obese

and our swords, overdrawn.

Maybe our trespasses are not as


or great

or worthy of attention.

Maybe our demons are abridged versions

of the real ones.

And maybe, 

just maybe, 

that means there is 

so much more need of this anger,

so much need, of more of this anger.
