Devil’s Paramour

by Sarmistha Gupta

Flung in vortex of numbness/bellowing vociferously
Rickety gates unfold /dizziness
Mongrel in a heap/doused flame
Scathing ash/scavenger gropes
Roasted potatoes/perspiring clay pot
Bubbling pangs/ devil’s craving
Larvae babbling/boastful in mirth
Chaperoning the cur/yawning streetwalker
Gay in charm galactic/achromatic night
Promenading the dim alley profane/ murky haze
Rips ambiguity/tolls fated scene enacted
Embodies hara-kiri in nature/dissipated prostitute languors
Blood curdling caterwaul/ominous enchantress
Cross eyed girl/gargoyle of oblivion
