A House Of Maybe

By Anjali Nayak 

To be able to refuse to live

in a locked and orderly house 

walls made of proof and reason.

A house I want to live in

is far wider than that.

There may be crops and weeds in the lawn,

but what’s wrong with a maybe?

No one would believe what once or twice has crept on me. 

will you ever see one. 

But only if there are angels in your head
