CREATION DESTRUCTION PRESERVATION


Previously published in Muse India


Have you ever made an omelette
Without breaking eggs?
I tried
I ate air

Was ever a forest cleared
So you could build your house
Where once lived deer
And rabbits and wolves?

Did you ever relinquish
A dream
So another
Could take its place?

Did you ever
Set a butterfly free
And have it come back
Sit on your knee?
