Treasure Island

Dilantha Gunawardana


Masala 2


The purity of beauty
Is fading like the arctic icecap
In the conglomeration of fragmented ancestries
As the crucible of multiculturalism
Melts cultural ghettos
To summon an admixture – The hybrid being
Embellished with a mosaic heirloom
Where beauty is a masala of genetic spices
The miscegenation of the cosmopolitan man
To unveil a spectrum of shades and sizes
In the backdrop of an aesthetic transcendence
As the notion of beauty evolves
Like the genetic load of a promiscuous virus
For the homogenized man to embrace an inevitable truth
That contemporary beauty is sculpted
Not by cultural archetypes
But by the tender portals of the sophisticated man
