bits and pieces Poem by Nikhil Parekh

I accumulated bits and pieces of exquisite cloth,
took surplus spools of thread and slender
stitched them all into a rich long articulate fabric,
which I proudly christened as my silken summer suit.

I amalgamated bits and pieces of pliable rubber,
acquired bountiful amounts of glue from bark of tree,
coagulated the curry of glue and rubber, exposing them
to the sun to dry,
the eventual outcome was as enchanting as twinkling
stars in the sky,
what I now held in my palms was a pair of solidly
punched and angular cowboy

I gathered bits and pieces of coastal silver sands,
moulded them deftly with soft pressure of my knotted
engraving intricate designs on the exterior periphery
of structure,
embedding the pure sand walls with a plethora of
translucent shells,
the sight for me to witness was a feast to my hungry
a midget sized sandcastle now stood ornately in
vociferous currents of ocean

I assembled bits and pieces of wine red brick,
prepared a blend of cement and crushed chips of
studded vacant spots on the exterior with pure Italian
laid a colossal drainpipe from head to toe,
the aftermath of which saw me in direct confrontation,
with the magnanimous silhouette of the princely

And finally when I mixed bits and pieces of my tears
with hers,
the liquid was resplendent with a mystical aura,
it made us reminiscent of the times of distress and
gruelling agony,
when we lived bifurcated by feckless boundaries of
class and status,
we still drank the concoction regularly decades after
tying the nuptial chord,
it quenched our thirst like god cures all those
afflicted with heinous pain.
