Mango Bites



The glowing fish
At the bottom of the sea
The twirling baby
Within the womb

The blood- tinged
Canine of a lion
The dead stag’s
Piteous elliptical face

The throat slashing
Hyena’s eye
On the shore
The rough crocodile’s spine

The black hole
Monster’s mouth
The rocking
Hurricane’s din

A thunderbolt!
The falling tree
The tumbling meteor

The oscillating crop
The raging hunger
He is the one, it seems,
All these

He never even sways
To flower throws and
Chimes of bell
- looks through the smoke
Of incense sticks
Into my
Shuddered eyes
