Manicure

The belief that
changing colors on nails
will change many things in life
The future, the past, all
might just change…
The korean lady at the
manicure shop smiles
and asks “Which one?”
“What do you have” she asks back
The Korean lady slowly reads the list
Soulmate, Eternal Optimist
Limited Addiction, Leading Lady
Meet me at sunset, Shop till I drop……..
She closed her eyes and listened
Everything felt as if made
just for her… she said….
“all… mix them all”

(Translated from a malayalam poem of mine)
