A Veiled Tree - Poem by Naveed Akram

A tree of veils and marrow
Aligns its roots in this direction.
I see the mammalian aspects
Of this united tree of vegetables.
I must find this plant with odours,
As faster is the pace of the growth.

A tree of finished products aligns
Its body with fermented beer.
I be it, I be this outrage,
Like warts and spots of the head.
My fungus in the mouth, the plants
Must reappear this time of day.

I must find him, himself, tonight in
Health, in wealth of light and tasks.
The offspring of the higher sort
May justly deserve a piece of sport
That lingers on, beholding no trip
So much averse to the tragedy.
