a series of kuralgar (an ancient form of tamil poetry which is still being used in Singapore today) semi-inspired by bob dylan’s “masters of war”, in particular, “is your money that good / will it buy you forgiveness” and “all the money you made / will never buy back your soul”; no prizes for guessing which “alternative currency” advocate i’m referring to here.

will power buy you

a woman’s silence?


will hate buy you

a country’s love?


will lies buy you

the world’s truths?
