Naked Eyes - Poem by Nikhil Parekh

When i shielded my eyes from blistering rays of midday
sun,
wearing frivolous black tints of exquisite glass,
palpable objects on the streets appeared faded and
disgustingly murky,
with all garment in flocculent white; seeming to be
dipped in grey sewage
water,
i felt as if sporadic flashes of blindness had
stealthily encroached my
vision.


as i obscured my eyes; with bulky frames of high
powered glass,
slender avenues of my eyeball resembled fully ripened
eggs of the farm hen,
single silhouettes of plebeians struck my eye
as multiple,
i groped my way faltering over bedraggled stone,
reached back my place of dwelling limping; with a host
of broken bones.


after i sealed my eyes with a tightly wound linen
cloth,
acerbic rays of sun god; flooded my vision as an ocean
of red fire,
there was gruesome darkness camouflaging me at the
onset of twilight,
i had to be escorted in person; with embarrassing stares
hissed by oncoming
individuals.


when i obliterated my eyes with round balls of blood
red plastic,
frothy white milk looked like ghastly human blood,
dazzling bandwidths of crimson pierced my eye,
and i refrained completely from consuming all that was
pearly white.


and when i kept my eyes naked for all day and humid
night,
the results were exhilaratingly remarkable,
pungent outlines of clock tower needles now reflected
clearly,
the sunbeams were as sharp as never before,
the full moon shone with undulating islands of misty
black,
it was that very moment that i holistically resolved,
to keep my eyes completely naked for the tenure i was
destined to walk on
mother earth.
