El Desperados

How desperate we are to laugh-
To chime with a can of laughter-
Exhaling nervous relief,
Reassured that it wasn't a can of worms.

A concert is over.
See you at the next one.

In the meantime
We shall continue to create and assimilate
The sweetest music ever-
Silence.


A response to the Zubin Mehta concert in Kashmir.
