(Loosely a long sonnet of thirty-four lines in iambic pentameter. To read aloud, as always.)

Couldn’t Care Less

I was a surly baby, which is par.
My parents told of a happy childhood,
Blithe nonchalance was my youth’s lodestar,
Until care crept in and settled for good.

Shashi Sastry
ILLUMINATION

I am a prism, refracting the light of thought into a rainbow of content for you. Poetry, philosophy, architecture, and more. LESS STUFF, MORE VEG = A FUTURE.
