There isn’t a sight that does not make me think of you
of your auburn burning skin in the heat-
a poem so soft on your lips,
it almost is center of all light
I produce
an inflammable kiss
awake
with fumes coalescing into fumes of rainbows
The body rises from something so chalky beneath
an enormous restlessness
traversing nights and days

I wish to remember days like these
beneath my frolic skirt
above my trembling belly
I wish to swallow your blank stare
your stare that revolves like a tangerine sky
with leftover peels of my summer orange.

I wish to remember dry afternoons
with a song inserted in my mouth
a bee that rotates like a tulip
between our fingers entwined.
Like all things of love and soft music.

    What a beautiful expression.

    It reminds me of Vladimir Nobokov’s protagonist.

      1. Because I didn’t read that book when I did with the 1st book of 2020.

        It was so hard to read because it had no sentences, no English was used. It had metaphors, and incidences.

        You have that way of penning down your words. You give an idea of your thoughts, but you don’t tell. If a person is matured enough, he will get what’s in between the lines. That’s your way. That’s Devika Mathur for me.
