Nayantara

My obtained house grows like a secret organization. The condition of grazing and disembarkment reveal restricted panes, unpracticed edges. Your indolence, century-old inertia forwards a bit more to the illusions. I yawn, in an excuse to have grown blind I open the white timber gate and touch the gate entwined with the details of mystery with the rain-scheme over description of mosses, petrol-torched walls shiver.

 

 

No Fly Zone

A spare cloud below a sceptical cloud

Thus in the days of studying clouds
We used to scrutinize the conditions of free-fall
A straight-line below another straight-line
Signal, another camp crossing the boundary
Personal idol pulled by familiar slaves
Heavy lead and pellet-struck mandate
Ordeals used to descend from the sky then
With rocks and leaflets would drop away
Illuminated chariots and meaningless bones

 

 

Desh Raaga

A scheme of instigation and gamble
I’m entering a hopeless circle
Considering infected plantation,
And a petty Chinese brass key as partial devotion
I’m also entering the circular layout, white bread
Erected dog’s life
Observing the next punter’s skill
Sedentary spring, occult history
Reaching out to the walls

 

Chhit Dahagram

Old border entangles within mindless wind
Swollen topography, personal axis
Barbed wire is bending towards a talk,
Statement of missing persons
In reality, every void has a personal Chhitmahal
Every black has a definite day and date of intrusion
Wind’s attire is moving very fast
Comfort is imminent
Blind-coloured sky is pecking the heat
And walls of a temporary mouza
