Bollywood Diva by Sanjeev Sethi

When the connect is corporeal
age is an argument.
At 35 or so, this one
and those of her ilk,
seem  jaded, jilted.
In my dome’s air castle
crow’s feet lines make
their faces appear fatigued.
Beneath the Botox ,
chichi shades
and sparklers,
I can see the soot.

Another  naiad, please.

Sanjeev Sethi
