His Queendom Comes!

His Queendom Comes!

I can't help but wonder romanticizing spaces where the construct called gender is appropriately understood as a dimensional spectrum rather than being made to enframed (more like 'engraved') into rigid binary borders. The poem celebrates the human amalgamation we are!

The jhumkas chhum chhum

As footsteps prance through 

The lane, back from work

And through the lanes of the poised heart. 


As red heels sing along the pathway, 

They synchronize through the beats 

Of the red lipshade

And that of the ecstatic soul. 


The Rajasthani folk women embossed on the saree

Dance an extra wave of merrymaking

And whirl on the symphonies of euphoria 

As the pallu wafts free in liberty 

Through the fresh airs of autonomy

Leaving behind the incongruous self. 


He celebrates his selfhood

As he removes the orange nail enamel 

And colors his nails into yellow

To sync them with the deep green skirt

And black heels

For the night fiesta. 


The gold finches

Perceiving in discern 

From the blueberry branches

Melodize their chirruping

As they see him adjusting his royal blue neck piece

Through the golden-yellow locks of hair 

That prance in queendom of sauve

Oh, the finches are more mellifluous than ever

I wonder why!


The wine is violet 

And smells afresh

As they all cheer with the glasses

And celebrate existences

Fearlessly. 

Loudly.

Valorously.


(Oh yes, the colors red, orange, yellow, green, blue and violet represent the lgbt+ flag!)
