Pineapple You find her in that ancient Idiom, about a juicy fruit perched Between two trees, and a dress of a million Sunlit eyes seemingly stitched together And slowly undressed by knife-peel And that succulent body is a blend of lemon and bumble bee A tad dimmer than the Tuscan sun Yet possessing more beef than kernels of maize And ...

Gardener I pledge-sealed destiny Gold-pacted her fore-finger And gale-caressed The glade in-between vermillion And at that instant, I metamorphosed to us Two transformed to one As I took a custodian’s oath – To forever be in sickness and in health – Embellished with a gardener’s pledge To empower the garden spade And master my spadework For a lifetime of tillage

Gestation She looks at the mirror The bikini bod that transformed To a baby bump, a flesh bud budding Inside an inland ocean She knows that their love is meaningless Unless an alibi resonates from their union – The legacy of two hearts and one flesh – Once they are no longer globetrotters Just ashes on a bed of sediment ...

Till Death do us Apart The discoloration Beneath your maple brown eyes – Embellished with sketches of artery trees That grew on an alabaster backdrop – As tears allayed your pain Painting coronas around your eyes In smudges of life ink I will press my nose against yours And close your eye-lids As my lips converge in gap-closure And kiss-chemistry Grazing underneath your honey-glazed ...

A “30 something” virgin woman A right breast that hasn’t tasted saliva And the left, seeming in the same fate Yet possessed by the dream Of becoming milk canisters – which like squeeze-bottles Can spurt some colostrum and tides of milk Down a bacteria-scarce Prim and proper buccal cavity She has mastered a lot in life – The Ph.D. certificate still rolled in ribbon ...

This heart deserves some solace; some peace. Yet, it is weathering a storm, bears poison of pain, blossoming anger , frustration , jealousy and all the rest of the particles that leads to demise. Why do we have a heart anyway? When in the end it is meant to be broken? Why do we try to safe guard it? When ...

Fortune Cookie in Sri Lanka Here in Sri Lanka Every meal is served with a fortune cookie When we lick off the leftover rice Off our fingers and we serve Some curd and honey as dessert Knowing that your soul-mate and life-accomplice Is the only fortune cookie The heart needs…….. When two creatures Are as closely-bonded as dough, as sweet as refined sugar As ...

In this week’s Ravaya column (appearing in the print issue of 10 July 2016), I explore the role played by newspapers in the UK’s referendum on continuing membership in the European Union, held on 23 June 2016. This column is based on first hand impressions – I spent 10 days in the UK just prior […]

Transactions In love…… You negotiate the chores Who carries the frisky broom… And who wears the flowered apron… You make deals over the counter Of lips in imperfect equilibrium Transaction made by lip-smack in the absence of linger And sometimes you haggle inside lingerie shops And on weekday nights, when she is all withered And a nookie is the last ...

A Short Novel Something I never completed. This was back in 2009, when my whole world came tumbling down. Preamble Dagawa knew his plight too well. He was the first prototype of a prisoner of war in the reenacted rivalry between the angels, temporally holding revolvers and grenades and not their accustomed harps and chalices and demons, who in their perfect maquillage of ...

Reflecting on my youth (18-40) Again, nearing the dreaded milestone of 40, I cannot help but recall my youth (18-40) in terms of the graceful gender. I fell for a handful people during that time and I’m going to reflect on every girl/woman I fell for and why. It seems that I need to leave this as a souvenir in the world wide web, ...
