Dipti Saravanamuttu – The Festival

Dipti Saravanamuttu

The Festival

If I don’t pick on a green woman
at the supermarket or on the sidewalk,
I can certainly find someone else to hurt.
Don’t ever doubt it, if the only outlet
for all my happiness is cruelty.
The family, a neighbour, whoever
is a prince of this world.  Hitler’s father
would kick the family dog
until it pissed on the family floor.
A man who never read Nietzsche
as far as we all know.
