( In response to a prompt “silk engineer” by Bob the editor and Shubha Vikas )
There are those who wear silk to appear important
There are others who tear their silks for importance
There are those who sleep with important others for importance
Neither a Diana who found those who can be brought against her
to be defamed
Nor a Silk Smitha who found those who got her a fame that was more of shame
She struggled alone with memories of abuse in her own bed and head
Legs folded within limits…..
Inside blankets unfolded
I smile at your perseverance to engineer a dirty picture
out of a woman who did not sleep with anyone
Definitely not You !
Foot note : Silk Smitha is a southern Indian actress who won accolades for films of soft porn and openly accepted casting couch,finally committed suicide . A movie " Dirty Picture " made based on her biography.
