Whispers by Vrushab Rao

There are whispers about me –
“Who is he?”
They ask.
Unlike the olden days where I hide behind these hands as a mask,
I try to find out.
“Who are these collections of flesh and bones who’s curiosity I spout?”
A fascinating personality, they seek to meet,
Fascinated souls I seek to greet.

And I do.
The fortnight of whispers finally comes true.
Oh curiosity of mine, where did this sudden resurgence arise?
For now, what I see is pure, unique, to surmise.
Between shooting stars from echoing cars
We had meaningful talks with words so sparse.

And among smokes, both brown and green
I had truly seen the unseen.
A new perspective on living –
Bright, beautiful, happy, hilarious, tiny, yet generously giving.
Amongst constant interruptions and belittling
I hope my happy tales of existence calmed those nerves unsettling.

We may or may not meet again
It’s reality, let’s not feign.
But those moments of awkward happiness
May have kindled some light on my inebriated mess.
In hopes of another moment of childish content in variety,
Eager to reduce the remaining unspoken anxiety,
I say my thanksgivings
To something bright, beautiful, happy, hilarious, tiny, yet generously giving.

The quality and quantity of energy present is the reason for life and everything it contains. Dr. Vrushab Rao is a quintessential human, understanding this basic law of nature but with little possession to control it. He embraces the oxymoron that is life in its explosive yet subtle, pugnacious yet peaceful, harsh yet intimately embracing reality. 

Welcome to his purview in poetry, a chance to look through someone else’s pupils, the concept of entropy in its most basic and beautiful sense. The tall pogonophile, an avid fan of the Miami Heat and Tottenham Hotspur, and a binge watcher and eater by passion, lives in Bengaluru, Karnataka, India.
