The Eye of the Tiger

1 Feb

I watch you from

the corner of an eager eye,

hopeful, loveful, parched for droplets of

approval, attention,

a wayside crumb.

You glisten,

then wink,

and evilly twinkle;

then shut shop to slumber

or only pretend.

All the while I pray for

your light to shine,

your orchestra to blare,

your rendezvous to fructify,

so you, blasted computer,

can whip up the damn internet

like itโ€™s your bloody job

to do.

    sukanya: Three short plays, performed back to back. The Last Annal of Alamgir, Karna and Aftermath. The information was on my Flavor of the Month/Minute/Moment page until yesterday. You can still read about them here: http://www.mumbaitheatreguide.com/dramas/english/20-preview-three-short-plays-.asp

    wordjunkie: I pretend to ignore it and not let it know about the trauma it’s causing me. Certainly won’t give it that pleasure. Hmpf!

    D: Said twice, it’s more believable. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Missed reading you. ๐Ÿ™‚
