When people hear about the word "unpublished", the first thing they want to know is if it is "authentic". So I have no other option but to publish some parts of conversations I had with the great poet.... Mind you, I would never want to publish that, but I am helpless here, you see.
Let me clarify few things here. First thing first. These are unpublished poems, that doesn't mean there are other "published" ones. :-D He is claiming to publish them soon, but lets not have high hopes. He is too busy with "other More important" things for a time being.
Ummm, I forgot about the second thing. LOL.
Ok, so here you go. The first one is,
In mornings calm, I act aloud
and feel my spirit soar
In evenings tired, I look straight back
and feel wonderful evermore
Such is my life, careless and free
and I hold nothing for tomorrow.
But spend all that I can today
and when the need arises, I borrow.
I liked this one for the sheer simplicity of the words. It makes one think that NKV is a simple person of a modest nature (which he is not IMNSHO, he is lil' evil). Don't blame me for my comments,
me: it really explains your case
me: I remember you had just 50 bucks..... You have to borrow.
Second one is a quick impromptu...
Books and bats,
sticks and hats,
tapes and songs,
clothes all wrong,
in the boys house.
Flowers and dresses,
shoes and tresses,
perfume and paint,
enough to make you faint,
in the girls house.
And this is for the sake of authenticity.
NKV: I take that as a compliment?
me: tresses are also found in nkv's house
me: and I saw a bottle of old spice too.
NKV: Well.. I'm an exception. :)
NKV: I'm the poet here.
NKV: So I'm not counted. ;)
I tell you, it's fun to read his poems (as a first critic). :-)
