DUD ~by Samita Chattopadhyay


 

 

DUD

A tranquil journey…
Many springs passed by…
He kept himself penned.

Now he is calm
Unflappable
Unflustered
Poised

The world seems far-flung…
He struts;
Braces himself from the odd worldly wind;
He does not want this bizarre world to cajole
Wheedle
Con him

Alone
Stuck in a lonely place –
Away from space and time –
It seems.
Come rain,
Come shine
He is not gonna move.
He swaggers…

He calls silence.
And there it comes.
He quivers
And wobbles;
His voice shakes;
He gawks at the stark silence;
It appears as a woman
An unscathed youth

Is this love?
He temporizes…
But like an ocean
Passion drives him crazy

He calls again
Tries to coax
Inveigle silence to talk
But there was utter silence

He yells,
‘Oh Gosh!
Wanna start
A fresh discourse with you….’

Silence smiles
Silently
