*** Dubai Debacle ****

Rating: 3.2
The dentist's voice echoed
from the valley of bicuspid.
Unseen, insignificant roots
that held ground so far,

Vanished in a gory grove.
Now cement shall stay
where senses once prevailed,
capped with a golden crown.

I remember those grains
of sand that shone in the vast
desert, till dunes gave way
to fancy foundations.

Helpless cactus plant, stares at its
reflection in the gleaming glass as
Woeful investors watch indices.
Valuations vanish in a gory grove.

Now senses shall spring where
cement once stayed. Back
home the juice corner introduced
a new flavor, sheikh shake.
Nikunj Sharma
