The television and the dragonfly
Joust through the night
The dragonfly: with a constant hum
The television: with constant light

The arbitrator sat through all of this
Eyelids closed, breath heavy
As the remote lay in his right hand
With a finger on ‘Mute’

He preferred the light of the television with the hum of the dragonfly? A strange, but wonderfully sounding combination, that. :)

Story of Parth's life?

Parth said...

@Vidya: Perhaps he fell asleep before the battle ensued. Who knows?

@Pallavi: Quite the contrary. You'll never find me in that state.
