FACE~by Bipul Kalita




Bringing a face
to hide thousand faces
to play the game of hide and seek
won’t work if our faces put the mirror

Imposed burdens
of theatrical emotions matter
of power mongers on explorers flatter
everywhere with faces that change masks

Piping their eyes
they peddle for selling emotions
to buy powerful blessings for long drives
legging far behind their emotional victims

Used shoulders
always remain faceless fools
possessing no laughter of their own
to comfort their mortgaged tongues

Lines of faces
lose mirrored identities
to shoulder flag white pretenders
before their offshoots day in and day out
always paving smooth ways for them to follow
placing me in a whirlpool to think for tomorrows
