They descend like scavenger birds.
One among them, the fairest of all. (Birds)
Black gritty nails, grubby fingers
twist the pink chubby face (Birds)
crush the red lips,
descend for forbidden taste…(Birds)
The blue eyes bewildered, yet habituated to misuse….
Was he a fallen angel dropped from the heavens in disgrace? (Birds)
Of a lesser God,
Lice - ridden, two spindles (Birds)
on an emaciated waist.
Eyes sunken in despair, (Birds)
a prop for begging alms,
a soul trapped in a little body,
biding its time, (Birds)
waiting for release
into the next world...(Birds)
