Traces Of Adulteration - Poem by Nikhil Parekh

Floating specks of dirt occupied drinking water,
paltry amounts of venom seemed abundant in gelatin
capsule,
the tribal liquor had extracts of sedative nicotine,
sliding door of luxury car contained an impurity of
threadbare plastic,
polished chunks of pure marble had reinforcements of
loose mud,
rich granules of food grain were blended with sharp
glass and stone,
navy blue solution of carbon ink was filled partially
with chalk,
glossy sheets of milled paper possessed tinges of raw
jute,
100 percent mixture of concrete had mammoth amounts of
burnt brick,
gallons of consumable milk was adulterated with tap
water,
finely ironed currency note lived in harmony with its
fake counterpart,
natural sea water developed traces of oil and thick
grease,
round biscuits of gold reflected sparse territories of
faded bronze,
meticulously printed ancient literature was remixed to
music album,
fertile clay mud resembled a vast assemblage of strewn
insecticide,
winter caves with drooping icicles were displayed in
exhibitions,
plastic exteriors of the monsoon raincoat had
invisible patches of colored
cloth,
a cluster of hybrid mango tasted like acid when
dissolved in salivary bud,
there was inflation prevalent in all quarters of
global society,
the only thing it was unable to imprison,
was the heart pumping at full speeds, nestling in
chamber rooms of true
conscience.
