Yanis Iqbal India//8:27pm, Jan 9th '22

Building

On the streets of luxury - beyond the gardens of graves - lies a building,

Tall, sturdy, hard.

Engraved with glasses of wealth,

Splattered with corpses of commodities,

A nauseating stench permeates each perforation of its shiny surface.

Just outside its iron bars of privilege,

Image

Paragraphs of poverty - punctuated with the commas of brute deaths - are written with blood and body.

Adjacent to the barbed wires surrounding the numb, sclerotic walls,

Lie the rickety legs and malformed bones of penury-eaten children - 

Enrobed in the torn clothes of tear-blistered mothers.

The building - founded on the scaffolding of workers' sweat - looks at the glutinous muck of misery around itself,

Sure of its ugly existence as a spigot of wretchedness.
