Young Adam-Old Eve

adharay,adharay awendhokar
arti caday aweneck rath
darkness,darkness,pitch-black night
arti cries mostly at nights-
neath the blanket of virginal sky
adharay,adharay awendhokar
Durriya hesitates,trembles,weeps
young adam,old eve-undresses shaking she her
daisies,daffodils-tulips get torn and tuned
as the tornado piercing,blowing pacify her
loveflute(tube)
adharay,adharay awendhokar arti caday aweneck
rath!cups after cups whiskey hush,hush
cats on hot tin tubs;nicotine carves out
nude,naked lust coiling against the ceiling
that shuns shrines,sins,suns
come on alaknanda;come on,come on,on and on
burn,burn,burn-desire of daffodils weaken
all fun-today I eat you;tomorrow I die
arti,arti,arti,let there be light
