3 Poetweets

(i) soon

i watch,
as i slide another marble,
from the throat of the bottle of scotch:
we emptied together,
soon it’ll be choked on betrayal,
like me.

(ii) typically a butterfly

delicate,
elegant,
colorful,
you were a butterfly,
i could never get over from,
and you tasted from your feet too,
Ah you were so typical.

(iii) hangover

spinning,
tumbling,
rising to spin again,
she knows something must be done,
to kill the hangover from last night’s tango,
and his whispers..

  1. Loved all of them, the tweet concept was cool too but I never knew you were such a big fan of Twitter 🙂

    Have a good day, Neeraj.

  2. All three are terrific. The second made me laugh “you tasted from your feet too,
    Ah you were so typical.” And the last one strong.

  3. Had never heard of a poetweet. How cool is that? It didn’t matter that there was actually a name for it because it was so enjoyable a read.

  4. You really ran with challenge! I’m so glad you tried the Poetweet – even though you had reservations. These are SO intense. Wow.

  5. Cool concept! And lovely poems.

  6. Creative work, Neeraj! I totally love the second one!!
