2502 : Tamil Poetry by Salma (The Worm)

The worm appears, slithering in the food 
as, with extreme hunger, 
I prepare to eat.

There is no reason for me to be hostile 
towards this slithering and sliding 
green, soft body.

Even though I learnt to cast it aside
and continue to ear, everyday 
it appears quietly, creeping towards me.

Today I being to learn 
to endure it.

In the years to come 
it grows, shifts shape 
climbs on me and crawls about 
sucking its food from my body

Frightening me 
with its stranglehold 
of possiblities.
