poem

POETRY / The golden hat

It was not a question one would ask as he did/ With his round glasses at the end of his nose

POETRY / Raw Magnolias

This is a garden, these are my petals; this is my armoring plant

POETRY / burnt honey

i quite like the smell of cloves, even more when they're burning/ turning charcoal in front of my eyes

POETRY / Shut your eyes to dance away the rainy nights

Shut shut let me shut my eyes, for even though / the dawn confiscating the dusk’s shades of greys arrives, / there is no place for me

POETRY / The searing beast

Sweat beads upon my brow, my shirt begins to cling/ The vile monster's tendrils reach out, adhesive

POETRY / I've seen love

I've seen love/ Rolling down from a mother's eyes/ As she picks her lean child, bathed in innocent blood

POETRY / Modern graveyard

We have built a civilisation / of sky-high buildings, / of concrete cities, / of disconnected communities

POETRY / No longer eighteen

like a caterpillar cocooned into its shell undergoing metamorphosis—growing up sneaks up to you whether you want it or not

POETRY / A means to an end

go further than/ what the hills have seen/ through their ice pick scars

A Dead River is All I Want

You know those instances when we start off in the wide, turbulent currents of a river making its way downstream?

In the absence of a light source

Grief is a lonely river, like a fisherman's song with an empty net

How to exist

When there’s a lull in the air, I get the feeling that I’ve scraped the bottom of my fleshy insides.

A childhood memory

Dust patterns have gathered around my landline phone, huddling around the maroon. my fingerprints take some dust off of it, and they rejoice.

Je chilo amar shopnocharini

You called me close in the moments of grace/ Veiling my delicate senses

You know how that day the wind brought out/ The crazy thoughts I had in me all the while.

I wove necklaces of lyrics/ Which you'd wear beautifully

A building, a tree, and a kid

Buckets of water I pour on my head; my vision gets blurry./ "The blurrier, the merrier", my mother said.

Saree

The yard in this noontime is buzzing with/ The white aroma of the guava flower

Heartache

I’m going through a heartbreak
