Dreamy nightmare

 a poem by Rajiv Lather
 
With assorted catcalls of
antiquity prototypes & womb sprouts,
(leading lights from the kingdom of impenetrable darkness)

nymphs smeared with fertility motifs, dance
to the chant of chastity hymns.

Scenes culled from
the suburban carnivals, pay

homage to semi-nomadic tribes
of bejeweled pillagers -
merit certificates, purchased
from whitewashed warehouses.

Cosmopolitan horoscopes
sprinkle stars
on my pantheon of ropes, as

a deluge of coconuts seeks refuge
under submerged umbrellas, samadhi -
messiah of minuscule.
