Three Dimensions

By Kashiana Singh

Three dimensions, home and more?

At Sea
Sailboats at sea
Neglected rains
Dehydrate my bones
Outlandish refrains
Inertia that hurts
Clouded windowpanes
In Air
Impatient hands drift
Whispering membranes
Incantation of spirits
Evil estranged
Feathers summit eagles
Wisdom ingrained
On Ground
Infusions of agony
Brisk champagne
Remembrance in gestures
Doctor proclaims
Healing the toxins
Demons remain
At Home
Bring me home
Bristling age
My dimming lights
Gaze reclaims
The kettle sings
Tea stains
In Between
Is it a curse?
To be trapped 
Weather vortex
Perennially curled up
In unconfirmed dimensions*

*Klein theory says that the fourth dimension likely exists, but unlike longitude, latitude and altitude which are extended dimensions, the fourth is a curled dimension – it stays retracted

We live in intermissions

Large pickles in Costco brine
Turning stale on refrigerator
Shelves, its aseptic corners

No one dead – just less alive
Conglomerating in obedience
Into astonished beginnings, like

Cul de sac’s that never end
Keep turning, porches that
Open into eager doorknobs

Being continuously wiped, of
Contagion memories
Body an altar prepared feverishly


Consumed differently, in small doses
Retained into crucial pellets for predispositions 
Reacts tenderly over time, with logarithmic osmosis
Extracting with potentization, poisoning gently with hypnosis
Poetry works me similarly, crumbling into me drops of a slow kiss

Maps Circa 2020

Bare bones
A walking cemetery

Floating oars
Inflections stay afloat

Suspended moon
Longing for festivals

Haunted temples
Echo vanished voices

*Klein theory says that the fourth dimension likely exists, but unlike longitude, latitude and altitude which are extended dimensions, the fourth is a curled dimension – it stays retracted

Three Dimensions
Poem relate to the lonliness -of a searching soul externalised by inertia on sea that hurts & on the ground infusion of agony and at the old age the dimming lights can listen to the boiling tea at home .
Is it solace at home or adds to the agony of loneliness ? But then,”In intermission” -the body becomes an altar prepared feverishly ? So where is peace being sought by an agonised
seeker of muse.
The city is a walking cemetry in 2020 ( the covid pandemic &fear of death is reflected )
It seems the Homoepathy of poetry provides that immortal kiss ( sweet Helina make me immortal with a kiss)
Poet has wrought wonders with words to the universal emotion of -Pain
The reading of these poems is an elevating experience
