Happens After 40 by Palas Kumar Ray

 


Not very easy
to write a poem
only for adults
without sex.

Thinking
Prompt is very clear.
too well I understand
what you want me to write.
But scrolling pages
ups and down
Thinking

How wise
would it be to write
what I often think.
Thoughts which are
dangerously sexy.

In fact
They are much safe
Off ears and eyes.
Otherwise
I would have written
Everything
happening
to you, to me
only after 40.

Thinking
They are no secret
to you, to me.
Even if I don’t
write anything
but
on a piece of paper
if I ask you to imagine
your thoughts written
I’m very sure
you will relish
an erotic free verse.

If you ask me
and if I do the same
same pleasure I’ll
get reading my work.
Thinking

But neither you nor I
shall write our thoughts
because we are
not old
not young
just above 40.

We know how to keep
safe distance
between fantasy
and bitter reality.

I shall not like
to keep any proof
what I think
what I thought.
Thinking.
