Gulliver’s Travels


He travels
From one island
To another
In search
Of love
From Lilliput
To Brobdingnag
From
Brobdingdnag
To Lilliput
Asking everyone
Where will he find love?

Some say in Queen’s castle
While some whisper
“Inside the
Box of Glumdalclitch”
Unsatisfied
He embarks on a new journey
Every winter
Every summer

He ponders day and night
Spends sleepless nights to find
One answer
Just one answer
“Where is love?”
On the voyage
He meets
Deleuze, Benjamin and Guattari
Who fortell
“It’s not heart but mind
Which can find love”

Listening
He again
plans a new journey
To a
New island
Called Laputa
Reaching
He asks every Laputiian
“Where is love?
Please tell me, Where is love?”
They answer with a poker face
“Solve this equation.
You will find love
(¶+4) = 45%”

Disappointed
He sleeps on the ship
Only to get washed away
To the land of
Houyhnhnms
Where he meets
Yahoos
And asks
“Where is love?”
And gets the answer
“Don’t you know
There isn’t any love?”

Devastated
And
Shattered
He removes
The anchor
In anger
And navigates
To home

Feeling Lost
He enters Home
With that
Cute sad face
Of his
And
Falls on bed
After
A minute of silence
I ask him
“Do you really
want to know
Where love is? “

He stares
At me
Shockingly
Not able to utter
A word
While I put
My lips on his
And
Say

“Here!”
