World

A symbolic poem, a reflection on the ruthless materialistic world of contemporary times. 

children

“Palaces smell of blood and malls come and go with children.”

Huts are ornate
with passage of slow time
Palaces smell of blood and
malls come and go with children.

I pause, wait for cataclysm
Schools open and shut like flowers
testimony to deflowered living

Pots of rice are gold
Steaming, but money
erupts like the tornado
in a tsunami spelled world
