Call it Love

wherever I can meet you
serpentine roads intrude 
like a bluff 
I don't like playing hoax 
the roads do 
I travel them in unmitigated hope 
that they do not intervene 
in a meeting that surpasses 
all fear
but the roads are insular 
they cave into pettiness 
and catch us red handed 
in this petty art of lying 
and infinite traveler that 
you are 
you, finally call the bluff 
come let us shake heads 
in disbelief, wrapped in this 
ghetto called love
by mercenaries who do not 
know really, how to.

Ananya S Guha
