My Keeps

Dr. K. V. S. Murti

I’ve many a keep.
Who make me pry deep,
Tease me with their looks:
They are the paged books.
They pull into them
And soon keep me mum.

They bare their bosoms
Like dewy blossoms; 
Well set in my lap,
Let me suck their sap
That works as poppy:
Makes me much happy.

Desire rich they cause
To clasp them sans pause;
Keep me out of sin
Away the world’s din;
Put me out of blight
And show the real ‘Light’.

–Dr. K. V. S. MURTI
