Poems

Punch/ I Kissed a Girl, I Liked it!

Spread the love

Reading Time: 1 minute

On World Poetry Day, we present are two love poems of Ampat. The first is tongue-in-cheek, and the second, rich in symbolism.

Punch

Love is balding

Growing a paunch

Writes fewer poems

They say

Has gone into hiding

But inside the impotent

Softness of love

Love is sexy

Always green

The rot can’t get in

There, a eucalyptus tree is stirring

In the wild, we(s)t wind

An aster is unfolding

Yes, love, don’t you know –

It still packs a punch.

***

I Kissed a Girl, I Liked it!

Your fruit hangs low

upon the bough;

so low that I can touch it

red as a blush

in love’s blood-rush.

Mad with passion,

come, taste it.
