prosthetic life

by SK Iyer

wooden-footed future gathers lampblack
from the wick of life
when shadows seek to hide light
looks for synonyms of happiness
in the lexicon of life

words fail -
singing and dancing
since the days of fairy tales
they have lost their shine

in the clichéd darkness
begrimed by the forerunners
travels the same time-bridged path
overburdened by footprints
towards the same destiny
