A Peddler Of Age - Poem by Dilantha Gunawardana

In the opium war
Between graphite and rubber
Between present-time and past-time
Between the riddle of fate and the brittle flame
Between evangelization and evanescence
Rests a mule of golden numbers and silver linings
Carrying beyond borders and borderlands
An ounce of nostalgia
