It has showered symbolically, just before

by Partha Sarkar.


It has showered symbolically.
Has returned home the boat leaving
The sultry warehouse.
Has returned the necklace made of moonlit silver.

Yet there is a skull in the wetland.
Yet suffocates the silent embryo.
‘Be calm…be calm….’ A downfall in the sleeve.

Then the questions:
Who goes upstairs leaving the backdated ideologies?
Who comes downstairs following the backdated calendar?

No answers
Only a sound
Slides off the delivery boy and dies.

‘Open the door…the delivery boy….
Let us enjoy our bastardies…’

A cold voice at the tower.
