Between



Sometimes I live between
the purple sighs of dusk and dawn
bubbles on water that slowly dissolve
drowsy buzz of a summer bee
at the end of a hung up call

in dark matter
in a time warp

between skew lines

and then at times between
dha nee re ga

Dha Nee Re Ga are key notes of raag Yaman Kalyan in Indian Classical Music.
