The Other Woman
She slings an orchid projectile at me
Should I drown her cats?
Incinerate her panthers?
Like an Italian widow
She always wears black
But orange silks would suit her better
With maybe a little wet green pike
Nesting between her breasts
Shining like quartz into another life
Another story,...Read More

In The Minds Fixed Eye

In the minds fixed eye I see five newly discovered graves,              
Headless lions sat atop an impregnable "Triumphal Gate";        ...Read More

Believe this
Nothing can separate us
No false imitation 
Nor a usurper possessed by
covetous notion
Nothing can separate us
Not the deepest darkness
of any Black Ocean

The highest barred walls
where the hidden one in his den 
Not the name Daniel -
this is the story of...Read More

I Want to Plant a Seed of Poesy
I Want to Plant a Seed of Poesy 

By Purushottam Dhakal

I want to write a poem
Every time
As people happen to die at road side
For lack of filling the stomach.
People are compelled to live a life
As they cannot buy poisons to...Read More

It was the missing decade 
of my life that came back,
late on one clammy night.

Wearing your visage
of a foraging girl
at the foot of a tranquil Vesuvius. 

Spent though I was,
for those decades still with me,
I sat awake listening to the...Read More

A New Age of Darkness
The era of darkness is near,

I can smell the ground starting to rot.

The penetrating scent of Fetidity

Assaulting the nostrils of pure souls.


With the putrid scent goes along,

Your last uncontaminated Exhalation.

There goes the only hope you had

For by tomorrow all...Read More

Darkly Smoldering Allies
Darkness and I have become allies,

 affinity by association's shadowed prayer

     spoken of the same kindred language,

consanguinity in our devout appeal

  of blackening night's smoky exposure,

like a coke whore I obligingly snort it

doomed to partake...Read More

facets of fear
as we stepped
into murky
darkening grey
recalling that
day you began
to fade away...
like vapour into
a mental decline
and sublime

tangible terror
lunacy replaced
sanity as you
voiced your mind….

bold angels trapped in blocks of ice
labyrinths tangled in whirlwinds slice
insidious moons after sulphurous noons
innocent beasts speaking...Read More

The human mind can be poisonous

Our own needs can be sulphurous....Read More

Premium Member The Great Fish Maui Snared
With canoe and hook of a jaw-bone
 below a great fish Maui snared;
and his brothers half-crazed behaving
 leapt and gouged in frenzy craving.
From Palliser Bay to Cape Reinga
 (departing place of the spirits),
from Egmont in the west to Mt Hikurangi

Something sinister stalks the streets
Searching the smells at sunset
Slipping unseen, slinking in shadows
Seeking that special sweet snack

She sees with rose tinted glasses
It's secretly stolen her senses
Slowly the serpent approaches
Since now it somehow seems safe

It's sulphurous stench overcomes her
She slumps at...Read More

Sulphurous moments, shadowed
beneath natures natural defences 
Tenderly swaying, the coconut palm 
leaves transmute devising my fan blades
Refrigerant elegance appreciated greatly 
chilled iridescent cocktails assuage  
My acousma heightens as the waves lash 
such a lovely sound, to woolgather
To think about...Read More

taps the icy waters
from the sulphurous deep
slakes my thirst
makes my transformation
into the beast

Night Watch
The harsh winds snarl and bite like fighting dogs.
No pity in this bull-black bitter night.
No stars nor moon can pierce the city fog.
No shelter saves the beggar from his plight.

The winds whip swirling grit and stinging grime.
Mad demons breathe out...Read More
