Rearranging a boiling day with copper coins

eat9

The Sunday was already sinking with the

Hopelessness of a mangled matted dying dream

That refused to let itself be buried or cremated

Instead it rankled and bit like an infected sore

Then the day itself like an unpaid angelic servant

Began to rearrange itself, starting with the small

Nagging boil, a pimple, that had come up on the

Left cheek, reddened and beginning to hurt a little

A home remedy on the net advised a mint paste

And Sunday remembered a fresh bunch of mint

Lying in the fridge. It was taken out and the paste

Was put on the sore while the green chutni reminded

One to use up six slices of a very addictive British

Bread bought from a very expensive shop selling

Foreign groceries. The six slices with the mint

Paste, half a cucumber, mayonnaise, a large tomato

Made a delicious batch of sandwiches to have

After one had gone for a very long walk to the

Government Pay Your Bills office and paid up

Something about paying up dues clears out grime

From the carcass of the cruelest croaking day!

Like sugar coming out of a viper’s mouth!

The tremulous hours of the taunting, tainted day,

Began to spill out small trinkets of copper coins

Brimming with the radiance of resilience and sense

The best one being: mint paste banishes pain

From an infected, hurting boil within minutes!

The transparent window to rearrange the ragged shards

Even inside the deepest well of

Woe in any carcinogenic day there

Must be that small transparent tender

Window of our very own, where we

Can look out at the one still shining

webbed wisdom inside the carnage

to think to get up to rearrange shards….
