preterm agony

…nine am
eerie silence
between four dimensional glass walls
bounces back on stone partitions
easily sneaks through gaps of hinged doors
of neonatal ward
where preterm tiny sacks of flesh
breathe paid oxygen…

…five past nine
three generations
all female
walk in
the last one
maturing premature
coo coos
not still
not still
at one and half kilogram…

…seven past nine
another infant gurgles in
dangling on aging man’s left arm
quite soon
hunger tickles his funny bone
and it gurgles louder
a middle aged woman
infants mother
plucks and cuddles him
to her left breast…

…nine past nine
gurgling fastens
as crossed eyes
meddle between hunger and feeder breast…

…ten past nine
“…this is when; my scalpel’s edge shivered whilst dissecting preterm agony…”
recalls maturing baby doctor
peeping through green OT mask
stands still
drops his pet knife
that clinking sound awakens third generation with a cry…

…fifty-nine past nine
lazy hour hand
quickly jumps a minute
to make it exact ten…

Winter's Drill

...just the beginning with duality
harshness far away
soils lose moss
a hollow chaos
of distant smoke
from burning corpse
winter's drilling fog...

...early morning
open eyes to open skies
shut them dearly
take a deep breath
feel dewy earth
circling inside
listen to the gushing oceans within
leave alone
rusty tides of hatred
to be burned
by fiery
golden rays of rising Sun...

On Passing Moments....

...visited wall of walls
absorbed colorful colors
splashed by friends and friends of friends
that keep healing me
the glowing bliss on a child's face
from twirls and swirls
off a soon-to-end sparkler
that I saw last night
easily whispered into me merrily
is an ability to pull-out happiness
from every passing moment...

unerased stubbles no
plant no kiss
your stubbles hurt
its been days
you razed 'em...

...worry not
come closer
allow me erase 'em
I got a new eraser
that you bought last year

...and then
the little girl
dropped new one
and wiped droplets
rolling down
on old flesh...

Munching Words

dump these words down your gut
you idiot
and ask for nothing more
they said
and I munched and munched those short and lengthy flicked at me
till I floated
friendship of the rich toward me
would never elope with dictionaries of the world
they but did
and I died
while waiting for a friendly burp off their palms...
