Liked this!! and how you have grasped the intensities of the conversations @Richa Sharma

And here is Richa's commentary on her poem.


We all experience interactions where ‘he tells me about her’ or ‘she tells me about him,’ and so on. This monoku employs tactile imagery from my surroundings to support the episode. My daily interaction with the handrail in the sunless part of my apartment helped me ‘see’ the chaos of an illusory relationship. Somehow, I feel all three characters share this cold handrail regarding each other. The poem is also a sort of schema that provides just enough perceptual clues to stimulate the reader's participation.
