Fortune Teller

Aye, fortune teller!
Tell the little girl
with two pigtails
how she’ll be touched
by something from hell
Tell her how
she’ll lose her way
like you lost your
wife and two daughters
Tell her how you
will first take her
in your arms and
then try to smother her
You inside her
She inside you
And then tell them
years later
how you are a
beautiful man
in some exotic language
(She will sit and
Your depths now
your shallow waters
Your darkness now
your shining armour
– Ananya Maheshwari
