The Arc

Amazing, curve of an arm,
wave of a hand speed breaking
over the stretch marks on lower back
feeling the lines like the habit
of taking corners of clothes and sheets
pressing in between the gaps
of two fingers, a pleasure
no one else ever even sees.

Wrap of an arm, making the back
and front the ancient interior China,
the arm, the great wall of China,
protecting from sadness
and occasional loneliness.

Curve of the legs fitting the other
like they were two rods under thermal stress.
The vastness of the ass comforting the lack
of it on most days, when my body hair
is as natural to you as blinking,
I miss how two bodies become void
In the shape of night’s silence, the arc

LOL: ( Weekly (List of Lit) Things ): A Newsletter

 

LOL Medium Letters Header

LOL ( Weekly (List of Lit) Things ) is a weekly curated newsletter containing literary articles, poems, spoken word performances, essays, blog posts, podcasts, even songs that I read/watch/listen in a week.

This is the era of browser tab disasters. The other day I saw a developer’s tweet about how a big number of opened tabs hung his computer, corrupted his file system, only after which he stopped using his browser tabs as a todo list.

We gulp web content like crazy. Get swayed away most of the times, lose ourselves in waves of hyperlinks, to find ourselves having wasted time like it was recyclable, because of which, the word commitment doubles its meaning. I’m here to help a little.

I will ease down some of your browser tab mania through a list of small numbered things that I read in a week so that you could enjoy them, and get back to work. Who has time in this world!

I have one more BIG REASON, why I started this.

If you’re game, or you play games, or if you don’t.

Okay, re-try.

If you want to give a shot to read what I read over, in a week, please subscribe! Don’t worry, I’ll only nudge your email once a week every IST Sunday, and you’ll always have a tiny little gray colored button to unsubscribe if you happen to not like my curation!

and please share, share why? Because you are BATMAN. No please seriously, if you know people, have friends who might like this, you could forward them the link. This is the only medium I can reach out to more people through you. I’m a terrible marketeer and a publicist. I’d really appreciate it. Thanks!
