Woozy Whistle, by Sanjeev Sethi

Woozy Whistle
by Sanjeev Sethi

When I am drenched in drink
dysanagnosia strikes me.
I begin to see old meanings
in new words
like foibles of my former lovers.
Of the present one
I never spot anything.
This is the unique thing about love.
When in the loop
one is as on a happy day
all smiles and silly stuff.
In a sense heart is ho-hum.
