Today is March 8th, the end of the winter season on the last full-moon day of the lunar month. To the Hindu population of the world, today is the festival of Holi, the storied Festival of Colors -- a religious spring festival in praise of Lord Krishna.

as a photographer

children of a
lesser god
clinging
to eternal pain
on a rock of
Sodom
like Prometheus
bound to
rusty chains

heart some brain
articulate
artistic
beauties
wingless birds
colorful but plain
androgynous
anomalous
holistic power
they contain
blessing new
born children
tears droplets
of trickling rain
a life they live
die unnoticed
standing erect
in their graves
iravan have mercy
a life lived in vain
a few coins
in a beggars bowl
fucked forever
blood flowing
down the drain
