Necropolis - Poem by Sunil D'pudi

The West is still young
And she closed her eyes
To the throes of incest pain.

All through the evening
My heart was marinated in tears,
My throat choked,
My blood crystallized to the nostalgia of fatherhood,
My mind defied all logic
And my veins shuddered
To the fury of vengeance. I throw
A handful of damp mud
On the corpse
I could still feel her tiny tots softly stamping my chest,
I could listen to a sprinkle of laughter,
I could still see a nascent beam in those half-open eyes.
