he had loved
he lost it all
now on the streets
with broken balls
a moving specter
he recalls
she threw
him out on
the streets
a house of
memories
weeping walls
a silence
cloaked
in a deathly pall

Hijra Beauty In A Hijra Veil

169,221 items / 1,316,486 views

neither man
nor woman
neither male
nor female
born frrom
a tear drop
of hope
to regale
on a bed
of thorns
my soul impaled
hijra beauty in a hijra veil
on the soul of a mans libido
i prevail a prisoner languishing
in my jail i blackmail
holding him by his shirt tail
walls of freedom he cant scale
embedded under my thumbnail
his cries his fears his wanton wail
a parallel line now derailed

The Hijra Made What God Could Not Make

biologically
cursed as a man
restless feminine
his honor he could
not forsake
his ancestry
his namesake
hijra grew tits
on a barren branch
that could never break
the hijra became a woman
for fuck sake keeping
humanity all awake
androgynous
no menstrual
machinations
no pregnancy
no headache
neither man
nor woman
a thirst to slake
an original
but also a fake
neither this
neither that
so much at stake
the hijra passion
molten lave
an earthquake
a creation
within a creation
make no mistake
the hijra serpentine
bitter sweet
poison unlike a snake
causing havoc
a million
heartache
lucid fluid
also opaque
testicular fortitude
turned into tragedy
a castrated
catastrophe
a jailbreak
cleopatra like
tempestuous
seductress
conniving
a keepsake
smiling at god
in sheer
thankfulness
for the golden
handshake



dedicated to the hijra goddess laxmi narayan tripathi my hijra guru.
pride of the hijra race hijdaeroticness dignity and grace
the hand of the poet is an optical illusion between time and space
