Treasure Island

Indira Renganathan

Systemic Lupus Erythematosus-SLE

Is not it
He or she but child of Hades
Queasily butterflying increasingly in rash
Over the nose-bridge disturbingly winged
He or she
Afflicted to grow impatient, demented

Agonised the temperature to hype aghast
Inwardly there's a systemic war of collapse
Part by part failing to be psyched..
Fevered spasm convoluted epileptically
To sleep still in mutiny adorably against the roses

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Burns

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
