We Few…#11


A breeze whistling pass my just bathed body

A car honking zipped on one side while an auto on another side.

The footsteps of night can be heard as leaves of neem & mango–

In my neighbor fall on their alabaster roof.

The doors of southern windows creaking–dancing in the wind

The curtains flying high touching ceiling; Ma sleeping heavy.

Kolkata, let me be Saju tonight; let me subdued in lament…

Sing your lullaby to Rupai, please, and her few days old daughter…

–xx–


Saju is the female protagonist from “Nakshi Kathar Maath” by Jasimuddin, a tragic love dramatic verse in Bengali.
