Treasure Island

gajanan mishra

(3rd April 19sixty / Tikapali, Patnagarh, Balangir, Odisha, India now at Tapobana, Titilagarh, Odisha, India)

Intake Is The Cause


Intake is the cause
Cause of all diseases.
And it is bitten
By the snake.

The snake is this
Material world
It is the material
Conceptions of life.

You words are medicines
That can save me
From the snakebite, my dear
It is the nectar
It is the cool water
For I am suffering from material scorching heat.

and the sheds were all cut out;
