Ahmedabad: Reawaken

Flames resided here,coiled in fury burning smoke choked up eyes, though 'til this graying forfeit of sight dangling in stale steam, floating trapped in the un- seeing of the ground

too late to tend the hearth? to eat and slurp on flesh breathe    up, gag in laughter to tangle in air's writhing kisses, spill in waves against dark tides that swallow red passions whole to dribble it up and out again. the heat intended to un-clog tree bark but fire forgot to touch 'til white-robed wind clutched last embers glittering and tossed us up to the leaves.
