‘Pluck and Play’ by Shriram Sivaramakrishnan

Every moment

a plant loses an argument


when the stem

is misunderstood-


its intention,

articulated at the pedicel:

is plucked.


Poet’s Bio: Shriram Sivaramakrishnan is an eternal lover of ‘things in between’, roads less travelled, emotions seldom expressed, moments forever lost, words constantly overlooked.
