Yes! I indulge

Chaarvi Murari

I jolt from my sleep
I jump into my flip-flops in reach

I peel off notes from every pocket
I bolt to the nearest supermarket

I strip off trails of inflated packets

I sweep away cartons in my bags
I grab onto big and small cans

I clutch tiny wrappers in abundance

I pull away rows of sachets
I throw away money more than my budgets

I scan standing there each and every rack
I load all the sacks on my arms, shoulders and back

I drag myself back to my hide
I pump tonics on the way like fuel to drive

I struggle to open the lock of my door

I pour all of it on my bed
I look at it as if never been fed

I rip off the covers
I tear off the tops
I spin open the caps
I unfold the wraps

I gear up to engorge
I make sure not to drop

All set to begin

I crunch, gulp, hog and munch, until I belch and buldge
Yes! I indulge!
