Primitive Odour of Love

nalini priyadarshni


And then, when we have held

each other for an eternity, I will

turn and pour us two cups of tea


the aroma of the

Darjeeling being overpowered

By the primitive odours of our love


Let the golden elixir

Cool the singeing passion

Until it could be collected in words


And I hear its aftertaste

In your languid laughter

Holding the last sip under my tongue


(Written in collaboration with a lover who refuse to be named)

Spread the love
