Masala 2 Poem by Dilantha Gunawardana


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
