Scent And Spice - Poem by Nikhil Parekh

I consumed rice blended with fish curry,
added pinches of salt to exit from realms of bland
taste.
i licked bare brick wall coated with sand plaster,
devoured spicy remains of natural plastic paint.
i trampled violently through fields of red pepper,
sprayed finely crushed powder in the vicinity of
shivering tongue.
i swam at feverish pace in extreme salty solvent of
the Caribbean sea,
wiped myself dry to feel allergic patches of faded
red.
i pumped the air with a blend of perfume and green
mustard seed,
sat for patient hours basking in a film of spicy
atmosphere.
i rolled in clay mud sprinkled with pungent
fertilizer,
smeared my wheatish face with semicircular cakes of
flavored mud.
i sat on a cushion containing fermented yellow sour
cream,
smelt of obnoxious odour all throughout the passing
day.
i rubbed naked patches of my skin with hot repellant
balms,
danced all day with thunder storms of ecstasy echoing
through my eardrum.
i tore big chunks of orange ginger from tender
branches of sapling,
drenched myself with a tumbler full of aromatic water.
i desired to breathe in an ambience of ravishing
alligator perfume,
swim in colossal ponds of suspended salt for the
remaining tenure of my life.
