You could have a big dipper   

Landing by Sanjeev Sethi

Self-starters usually get someplace.

It is in the order of things to be

your own intercessor. If you wait

for the wind to call out for you; you

will have to hang onto your hat.

Still, a damp squib may cross your

curve. A well-lit map doesn’t secure

an easy ride. There is no grubstake.

No futzing around. In this ticker-tape

parade, a made man takes the lead.


Sanjeev Sethi has authored five books of poetry. Hesitancies by CLASSIX, an imprint of Hawakal, in July 2021 is his latest. A month before it, he released Bleb from Hybriddreich in Scotland. He is published in over thirty countries. He is the joint-winner of Full Fat Collection Competition-Deux, organized by The Hedgehog Poetry Press UK. He is in the top ten of the erbacce prize 2021 UK. He lives in Mumbai, India.
