( In response to a prompt “silk engineer” by Bob the editor and Shubha Vikas )

 

There are those who wear silk to appear important

There are others who tear their silks for importance

There are those who sleep with important others  for importance

 

Neither a Diana who found  those who can be brought against her

to be defamed

Nor a Silk Smitha who  found those  who got her a fame that was more of shame

She  struggled alone with memories of  abuse in her own bed and head

Legs folded within limits…..

Inside blankets unfolded

 

I smile at your perseverance to engineer  a dirty picture

out of a woman who did not sleep with anyone

Definitely not You !

Foot note : Silk Smitha is a southern Indian actress who won accolades for 
films of soft porn and openly accepted casting couch,finally committed suicide . A movie  " Dirty Picture " made based on her biography.
