Foolish, not Social

Source: yoitscilli @ Favim
Returning home do you feel you talked too much?
Cleverness, do you feel very tired?

Do you feel like sitting quiet in the blue cottage
Burning incense, after a bath, on return?

Do you feel like wearing a human body at last
After taking off the demon's dress?

Liquid time carries moisture into the room.
Do you feel like an ananta-shayana on her floating raft?

If you feel like that, come back. Cleverness, go away.
Does it really matter?
Let them say foolish, let them say unsocial.

~ Sankha Ghosh
