Two Poems by Partha Sarkar

The Sacrament

The starvation.
A long queue.
The empty bowels.
The listless state.
A long march.
The sea crossing.
The drowning of the dead.
The Earth revolution.
The sacrament without
Red wine.

The Box

The science.
The opening.
The pandemic.
The pandemonium.
The sick child.
The pallid face.
The padrone.
The pander.
The disappearance of the green leaf.
