Certain intangibles

The route
To the root
Is no where

Is a cow permitted to drink cow milk?
Does a labour union have a labour union?
Can a guru's shishya be a guru to his shishya?

The ordinary people, everyone talks of, who are they?
I dare you to come out and show your face to me

I went to Purulia to master the Chhau
You can't, said the cultural head to me
It will be a bit too intangible for you

There is no god, I said
That's when the mob threw
Their Bibles, Torahs and Korans
At me
