By Sanjeev Sethi

Heart learned early about issues
of entanglement. Player of my
pitfall indited on the quicksand
between us. When awkwardness
of first love entered, inly I knew
cruelty of contours but I swam
with the blues. Second time I was
champing at the bit. It happened
quicker than I could control it. In its
sway I saw charm and crookedness.
