Ok -- a Poem

Ok – a Poem
By Mahbubul Karim (Sohel)

Ok, so one life to live, huh?
Walk on the moon?
Or swim near the Barrier Reef?
Nada
Ok, so haven’t been on the moon
Nor swooned under the sea
Snorkeling amid sharks
Impossible?
Blah! Blah! Blah!
Breathing the air
Deep and long
Swallowing water
Like pure mist
Seen the ocean’s heist of the sun
Setting like large blood droplet
While the new moon
Stuck on the sky
Like a curvy knife
That farmer thrashes life
Of Weeds and brambles with
But who says
This moment, this frenzy
Of pressurized heart, aching
Muscles and tattering bones
Even in screeching pain
Jumping off the calcified mirror
And saying hello in tingling tone

One life to live, huh?
Ha! Ha! Ha!
