Drizzling midnight with
Pradeep and Kavi
Sharing the eerie silence of
Kozhikkode beach

Silver sand
Cement bench
Orange street lights
The odor of the armpit of
Vasco da Gama
- Cocktail of our friendship

From the unkempt hair of Pradeep
Saline music
Trickled to the bluish sand

There was no sky above
For Kavi
To conquer a starry night
He retraced his footsteps
To translate the hollow streets beyond

With reverence
Pradeep touched the ocean
Two surfs forming his wings

An alchemist
Spreading the wings
He stood over the ocean

Singing soulfully
‘Pottithakarnna Kinavinte Mayyath
Kettippidichu Karayunna penne…’

Transforming the
Alkaline water
Into sparkling alcohol

Hey woman, tearfully hugging
The remains of a broken dream..

Adam and Eve

Trapped in a room

The cloud

Heard dialogues of

An old couple


It rained on the love

Scattered around the room

Silver fish

In the middle of
A stream


A lightning
To be a silver fish

He kissed her
I wanted to taste your smile
How does a smile taste?
Like sunshine, this universe and the orbit

He kissed her
I wanted to taste you
How is the taste?
Like fresh earth dug out of
This bleak graveyard

He kissed her
I wanted to taste your shadow
How does a shadow taste?
Like honey, past and the present
Missing only the taste of
Our future together
