Of blood and of bones


In the name
of blood and of bones,

we rectify the very essence
of human existence;

and that is
a connection,

distinct,
and untouchable

You cannot see,
you don't really know,

nurturing its way
into the womb

of your darkest void,
your deepest cut

The intensity
is shaking;

you cannot hope
to disassociate,

to fathom
an existence,

devoid of this,
very connection

For the inception
of its home

is not one of today,
or yesterday and the day before,

but one of eons ago,
whence Adam was created;

and God said to him
'Eat not, this apple'

But eat it,
he did;

and to this day,
we evolve:

In the name
of blood and of bones 


—for Farhan, from the archives ('06); rest in peace, brother.

Jiss bhi ho aasmaan par, 
ummeed kartay hain yahi, 
ke naa baaqee hai koi aas, 
aur na bachi koi talaash
