The seed from
The shit
Bird shit

The bird and
The tree
The shade and
The darkness

Banyans are

But the roots
That testify to
Time, at times
Eat into the
Vitality of existence
Threatening peace
And equilibrium

And you uproot
The banyan, leaving
Behind broken concrete
Slabs, time and a
Bruised body!
