Starvism(Poem)

When the hunger
kindled
belly-revolutions
the world
didn’t feel like Maya(illusion).

I had to agree with Charvakas.

Yet
when the buds were
touched by Samosa

I was reminded of
Frank Mccourt’s
“After a full belly,
all is poetry.”
words.

So
I had to agree with Plato.

There exists
a realm of forms
with perfect Samosa-ness
untouched by chef’s
imperfections and flies.

When the belly’s happy
all philosophies die away.

If not
we get
Marxists
Existentialists
and sold-out poets.
