“Post-mortem of Hands-shake”

    Microscopic illustration of porcupine spokes,
    Alien viruses from trillion light years find a scope;
    Toddles from the womb of  black holes;
    Hires our 24 senses as infected tenancy soaks to coax,
    A pandemic threat finds our planet as an ageless host.

    Nostrils of oesophagus are pass-ages on lease,
    ‘Post-mortem of hands-shake’ are stored in mortuary to freeze;
    Social distancing is an only antidote of fecund breeze,
    It uses hour’s eyes to encircle and mark designated victims;
    Atoms in atmasphere under macroscopic stethoscope just can’t see.

    Now doors and windows are sectioned to be latched shut,
    Containers of infected solar rays may n’er enter inverted huts;
    Prescribing all Doctors not to cough even though eat puff of dust,
    Neo carnival of masked eyes let not have arid tears to outburst;
    Alas a strange color-play of robes in black backbites black outta’ thirst,
    Dialysis of dual dialects diagnose Deuteronomy of Darwinian duet to contaminate first.'
    A(a)kash has been a part of few anthologies and Poetry Festivals namely Efflorescence by Chennai Poetry Circle, Glomag by Glory Sasikala, The Virtual Reality (Sparrow Publishers), Guntur Int Poetry Fest and many more. He is also a proud member of Soul Scriber’s Society, Salem that curates Yercaud Poetry Festival every year.
