Colombo heat

some stories

like snow

melt in the sun

leaving without

a remembrance

then there are some

which persist

like Colombo humidity

Then a sound track

comes on the radio

on dull April afternoons

while you are bled and dry

with anxiety over new

endeavours, but

remember what she

said to you

long back in September

on a mountain somewhere

wearing baggy sweatshirts

and awkward glasses and,

once more,

the summer comes calling

begging for scorched love

and Colombo heat.
