ashes to ashes jalo aur jalao

temporal

turtkes - rumana husain photo- rumana husain
flare glares
burns, rages
kehti hay jalo jalao
jalo aur jalao

fire prostrating

to clay, as

satan twirls
moustaches
this is not the ire of rome
nor the liquid rave
that separated noah

beware for He is father
of all fire, fury and furor
merciful, graceful
wrathful, unforgiving

maloom hay humaiN
yeh aag nahiN bajooz oos aag kay
jo kisi aanay walay lumhay maiN
sub aalamouN ko chupa laigi
apnay shikanja e zeest maiN

her smile a glimpse
of the promised
inferno
big bang beginning
of molten passion petrified

heaven’s rage
creative, consuming
enraged we bow

flare glares
burns, rages
kehti hay jalo jalao
jalo aur jalao
