In a room

Gold Flake Kings cigarettes, Dylan songs, office darn lemon tea, rickety autos, Raymond Chandler to Kurt Vonnegut to Samuel Beckett, beer drinking, obscure humour, love and those pair of eyes, late night sleeping, surreal dreams, witty unsaid quotes, random Delhi music shows, red embers of hate, English literature, sinking and blogging, the riffs of blues, flashes from The Master and Margarita, Sympathy for the Devil and Exile, castles of vanilla and clouds in the sky, card houses of hopes, visiting Kerouac, ghost of Orwell, Dickens gloom, poetically versed Cohen and Beautiful Losers, and I The Outsider, God and Nietzsche, those Enid Blyton childhood, now Elvis leaving the building, more brass tiles loosening on the wooden plank, hidden meanings in simple honesty, Howl howling, dream burning as a morning on a horizon, sad train journeys, sense of loss, suitcase but no travel, Barista coffees on hangovers, newspaper print, existentialism, the sheer fear of whores, selling souls, words, wisdom, wit, thirst of a river, lust of a green sea, rain and wind, songs, lies, thighs, mysteries, ironies and sadness, and burning with zippo, and this on and on.

Thank you for your wine, california

Thank you for your sweet and bitter fruits

Exile for me is just like a junkie's fix. Only the high lingers on for a week or so. Then it’s time for the next hit. And I don’t have to pay shit for that.

fer sum reason i tried restraining hell lot frm commenting on yer blog....but the last two posts are phenomenal....

i dont know how much do u really values your readers comments but here's wat i have to say.

you aint a writer,you're more of an artist!cuz last two post esp this one isnt a mere string of words....its more of art flowing n dripping frm words almost like honey frm beer..

steamroller: I understand now very well. :) Yes, Vonnegut's the dude. Clearly. Could've added more things, but then the list doesn't stop.

ricercar: :)

xanjukta & the dude: Shit! I guess that's what happens when you're a smoker. ;)

catmesiter: neat place you got there.

lemonade: thanks there, and sure you can.

anki: I wonder why you said that but surely got me wondering about it. But I guess its not like that -- nice try ;) -- it just seems to been there; there's fascination there as well. thanks.

peu: I like people commenting, it makes me feel read. (And a writer always wants to be read -- so then they grow old and behave like Naipaul, I'm kidding there.) Why were you restraining? All thoughts welcome here. You've been too kind with your words. Thanks sweetheart.

I love these lists that may or may not be poems. They describe a state of mind I wish I spent more time inside or.
