Treasure Island

Nikhil Parekh

(27/08/1977 / Dehradun, India)

in every bit of

In every bit of white enamel engulfing teeth; there
sleeps calcium,
in every bit of morbid stone; there sleeps a radiant
in every bit of green grass; there sleeps a blissful
dew drop,
in every bit of scorched sand; there sleeps a penchant
for rain,
in every bit of blood strewn on the floor; there sleeps
tumultuous pain,
in every bit of scalp hair emanating; there sleeps
white flakes of dandruff,
in every bit of time piece wound on the wrist; there
sleeps hands of hour and
unleashing minute,
in every bit of dazzling sun ball; there sleeps
indispensable beams of
stringent light,
in every bit of the century old mansion; sleeps
compressed briquettes of dust,
in every bit of satiny web lingering from the
wall; there sleeps an innocuous
in every bit of sapphire blue sky; there sleeps an
innocuous cloud,
in every bit of castor seed oil; there sleeps a
ravishing fragrance,
in every bit of copious saliva; there sleeps an army of
in every bit of woven gold mattress; there sleeps a
royal king,
in every bit of poetic verse; there sleeps an enigmatic
in every bit of scarlet rose; there sleeps a wrinkled
in every bit of pachyderm feet; sleeps
polished nails of ivory,
in every bit of mother's heart; there sleeps perennial
in every bit of fiendish monster; there sleeps
perpetual animosity,
and in every bit of the omniscient creator; there
sleeps magnanimous love.

The world is full of meat and drink,
With little children saying grace
In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
