A metonymy for life!
nuances and innuendos,
a morsel of leftover words;
decoding syntax and semantics!
Taxonomy of hysteria,
blurring the gap between space and dimension.
Peeping from behind translucent ballads
are hurrine rhymes
trying to carve a niche
within a heartfelt epistle.
Noctilucent clouds on summer skies;
splurged with meta communication midst graphic metaphors.
Dangling dreams from distant corridors on sordid noons.
A table fan, Maa's flowing hair, fish bones on aluminium plates, the smell of egg curry on my fingers; Baba's sweaty shirt smelling of his toils. Thamma's broken wooden chair. Spring evenings and an ivory reticence wrapped within an empiricist's sheet; a metonymy for life climbing down the spiral staircase of remembrance, wearing a galvanized smile.
