Trivia

These days Life’s uneventful,
Work absorbing,
Leisure elusive,
Weather insipid,
And all I can write is Trivia.

About Norah Jones’ latest tunes
ringing in my ears.
And half read books on the bedside table
gathering fine dust.

About missed chess matches in the last weeks
that won’t enter my journal.
And the trip to Venice lying ahead
that will merit a blog.

About the Proof we sought
at the RoadSide Theater.
And the dinner that followed
at a place we frequent.

About the reader who reads
first with patience,
then hope,
then concern,
and finally despair,
Arrhythmic lines filled with Trivia.

  1. Loosemuse: Are you a mathematician or a poet?!

    Leela: I’ll attribute that to brevity: when presented in a few lines, they seem eventful; spread over days or weeks, one yearns for more! (Btw, your visit here was a pleasant surprise).

    White & Black: I’ll leave it colors to show it isn’t that black and white 🙂

  2. Pramnau :
    Cant one be both ? why should u see life in white & black ? [ er leave alone that ‘black & white’ dont like see color ! : ) ]
    why are you guys so bent up against mathematic(s/ians) ? [ even if i don’t think i’m one – it sounds good to be able to try to defend somebody ! ;P ]
    BTW dontcha know that these days hep poetry aint s’posed to be rhyming or having rhythm ? hmmm…

    BTW – there goes real art ! and i mean really real art for real ! You write it to indicate how boring you thought time was & there was inadvertant art creating itself in whatever you were brewing !!! And here you are trying to defend yourself against the crime of having had a good time – and i can hear our-dear-arrythmic-art having a quiet laugh watching all this ! ;P

  4. Loosemuse: I initially thought of writing “accountant”, but considering your academic bent of mind I decided upon “mathematician”. I now regret it 🙂

    About ‘real-art’ – I’d thought these were lines of prose masquerading as poetry, but when a critic like you thinks otherwise, I need to reconsider my opinion as well…
