What do you need to believe?
Shiva Keshavan wears names like prayers
wrapped around him, as he flies
down highways of ice, chasing glory.
He is carrying dreams and pledges
that hold him, like the many armed deity
steady on the road, arrow swift
unflinching, and joyous in his might.
How do we wrap our young men in this?
Love, in a weave inspiring life, not
a shroud, another set of prayers
for justice, or healing after the fact.
