When She Is Around
By Rajiv Khandelwal (October 2017)
Remy Duval, Man Ray, 1930
She a stimulating conversationalist
Creates countless talking points
With explosive energy
Finesse few possess
Time spent with her
The sound of her voice
Her facial features
All a magic tick
A spy-hole into dreams
That magically transport
Like the monologue
After just the initial narration
And keeps it captured
Till the encore
A flawless fantasy
Every split second
As a look into her arsenic eyes
Which disappear as quickly as frozen water
As it seems
When she is around
