In Praise of a Poet-Old is Gold

In Praise of a Poet-Old is Gold
Originally uploaded by flickr photographerno1 You say what you have to say
In a single line of a poem
A thought so bold
Poetry is releasing the spirit
From the flesh
Old is Gold
In praise of a poet
No bars withhold
A memorable moment
Of time pages of a newspaper
As a thought unfolds
No hatredness in your words
No regret no malice
Just you your poetry
Solitude silence breathing
Blow hot blow cold

the stink of human excreta
the duplicity of a thorn stabbed rose
through my prostituted poems i expose
byzantine barmecides feast and a papal nose
regensburg didactic dialogues i suppose
what is poetry post partum
postulations unpeddaled unpimped as prose

Strawberry flavored ass
Me a 54 year old man not a
Forum lass
I think this is love
At first site
This solemn moment
Serendipity of soullessness
Time and tide can’t surpass
He comes begging for more
This devil whom I love equally
Minus mind minus mass
He is mine forever
This tweed headed bypass
Yes we are human
He loves me as I love him
He called me on my mobile
Said Firoze no more shall
I ever harass though
Earlier I was a snake in the grass
My Australian soul
Embedded in your multicolored ass
He confessed he wants to marry me alas
Such beautiful sounding voice
Such sharpness of a twit cut glass
For the marriage we have list
Only poem hunter poets and no working class
David Hazell, Chris Mendros, Greg Collins Ask,
Ryan James Frank Jr, Yoonus Peerbocus

even the moon

hop skips and trots
an indian digitalised poet

her conscience bycotts.

Thus the Poet becomes the Educator, and from his own experiences becomes even better then a very fine writer...he becomes yet a wiser person than he was before his experience...And that is good...very good, indeed...
Erudite, and knowledge-lending work, my friend...Rock On, Firoze...


Inspired by the words of Frank James Ryan Jr

Yes its true over a cuckoo s nest I flew
daily banter shadow boxing
From a poets boxing ring I withdrew
Like Ryan I am not a poet too
Poet and poetry like shoe laces
On a shoe..on an amputees foot
Prosthetic prophecy that
Wanes does not get its due
Hate hatredness in lieu
From the burnt out
Tree in a man s heart
As it grew
Fruits of ill feelings
Colored malignancy
To imbue
Poetry that resounds
Empty words
Loves itself but not the
Man in you
Bitterness with which we pursue
Dormant diagnostic dementia
Madness that borders on self delusions…

The Awakening

The Awakening
Originally uploaded by flickr photographerno1 Racism is an ism to which everyone in the world today is exposed; for or against, we must take sides. And the history of the future will differ according to the decision which we make.

(Ruth Benedict (1887-1948) , U.S. anthropologist. Race: Science and Politics, ch.1 (1940) .)

Evil comes to all us men of imagination wearing as its mask all the virtues.

William Butler Yeats

But I, being poor, have only my dreams; I have spread my dreams under your feet. Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.

William Butler Yeats (1865 - 1939)

I have decided as of today
The world of pretentious poets
And racist poetry to ignore
Write as much graffiti on my door
Its locked like my mind
Far away from this hate filled shore
Only good friends
good poetry
to explore
I distance myself
From juvenile banter
Cowardice within a forum
A convenience store
I will say no more
I don’t need to hog limelight
Or make a claim
Or fight someone’s battle

Nothing to be found here; criticism and complaints with no viable alternatives. This is exploitation of the word poetry.. Prostitution awaits the reader.

Foster Finding Fault Faulty Blaine
Fuck you should not read my poems
And more fuck ferris wheel your brain
Or the little you have pea headed Blaine
Why don’t you read what you write
Instead of lighting a multi racial fire
Under my ass unfostered Blaine
You seem to be a fucked Voice
Of America in a dead poetic casket
Foster Blaine
Is finding faults is all that you do Blaine
Cloud bursts of your emotions
Fucked all in vain
On the metaphoric mound of my poetry
Your criticism a menstrual blood stain
Why don’t you poetically toilet train
And unleash your fucked comments
On some American scatter brain
You have so many clusterd in a white house
Foster blaine
Why immortalize me dear dick drain..
Weapons of mass destruction were
Not in Ira…

Originally uploaded by flickr photographerno1 My parents were migrants from Lucknow Uttar Pradesh, Lucknow is quite a contrast compared to the rest of Uttar Pradesh, this just a thought, as Lucknow that I belong to is the old decadent and antiquated one, the administration one after the other has not yet got up from its stupor, so the old Lucknow that I belong to is gradually sinking in a cultural mire of poverty and degradation, Ignorance reigns supreme , no state in the North wants to emulate the success of Mumbai , so every next guy wants to wake up in Mumbai, its a punishing life , success million miles away,

Unlearning Poetry

Unlearning Poetry
Originally uploaded by flickr photographerno1 poetic pictorial , palpitations on
the emulsion of my photo blog
on mans mindless , heartless membrane
mysteries of ritualism and oracles arcane
writhings of a gods human pain
seamless silence, seeping sweat and
tear drops of a human god,
dripping drowsily as blood stains
crucified creativity , crucified humanity
pride vanity and more pain
of love sequestered beneath
bare feet and hate unslain
karma a rotting putrefying chain
dharma devilish thoughts that drain
treasures second hand squandered in vain
closed venetian blinds
of a claustrophobic congested brain
scales of justice blindfolded
more pretentious pain
in a world schizophrenic
life and living going insane
death driven cargo of
a passenger train
unlearning poetry
unlearning photography
truth maintain
prostituting my talent
for free
in an illiterate
whorish moneyless domain
read me
dont read me
write me off
why complain.

My Reply

thank you Foster Blaine , would love to employ you as a pimp for a just cause.. once in a while prostitution does a better job than the monotony of a senselessly asexual wife... or rabidly uncoming husband , your suggestion is much appreciated .. at least I give you an alternative for you lashed out , languishing libido.. thats if you have one...and you complain more than me about your unsatisfied married life.. you should read my eunuch poetry as the other alternative to your troublesome angst..

Originally uploaded by flickr photographerno1 alongside his uncle
sits the young malang of ajmer
a prodigy
a clairvoyant rare
he will into your eyes stare
all your dark secrets bare
bring you out in the open
from a devils snare
your inner emotions
he will not spare
evil buried in you heart
he will tear
come to char yaar
this malangs
spiritual lair
You will keep coming
year after year
I swear
the dead the living
lying side by side
in a fair
all this
the first time might scare
the malangs 30 feet
dreaded hair
black clothes
that they daily wear
a nephew
two malangs in a pair.

This Malang is so confident, wise, his child like face merely a facade… to his inner prowess .

A Pope Apologises

A Pope Apologises
Originally uploaded by flickr photographerno1 photo courtesy

The Catholic apologies of 1998 and 2000 are different from those of other denominations:
Apologies are on behalf of some unidentified "sons and daughters" of the church, but not on behalf of the church itself.
The apologies are vaguely worded so that it is sometimes difficult to identify which past atrocity is being referred to.
It does not include any mention of present behavior that is sinful or deficient.
It does not describe any plan to prevent the recurrence in the future of past crimes against humanity.
The Church teaches that, as an institution, it is pure and without fault. It was created by Christ and is maintained by God to be free of error, in the past, present, and future. It is only individual church members and leaders who have sinned.
Pope John Paul II's apology was opposed by many Vatican leaders. Some church leaders felt tha…

Only death and doom

Wisdom as a cheap remedy
For common cold
On roads is sold

Blocked nasal cavities
For intelligence to remold

To hurt other communities

Cybernetic minarets of hate
That infiltrate
Poetic forums
To radicalism cultivate
Ya Elahi what a waste
Its not about Sunni Shias
But a dangerous trend to state
Where a rant and not a poem
The rest of humanity berate
These guys paid by their
Petro-dollar states
Spiritual hegemony
On secular hearts reinstate
Keep the white man in fear
Let their guilt expatiate
These Mogadishu
other country born
UK settled new Kafeel Ahmeds
Misplaced Martyrdom seek
And a Jehadi Paradise await
A hate filled suicide
bomber waiting to detonate..
