Haze by Naveen Kishore

eye of haze seeing 
un seeing the mirage near 
near-then what-must appear 
                                                                        as far
distant to the touch 
as hands-cuffed 
go through the gauze-like wall 
transparent wind 
yet blurred with unclarity 
already squinting eyes red
their reach out of-reach
heat simmers rises rises-slow 
mile after mile 
like last nights tongue gritty 
with your shimmering 
shimmering night-sands 
as you woman
stretch your arms wind-wards
my mouth full of your dream
lies haze-like 
in your disappearance
