ROYAL FINGERS SILENCE ME~by Bipul Kalita


 

 

ROYAL FINGERS SILENCE ME
************************************

When hungry nights weep
I often try 
to dive into sharp royal tears
calculating and circulating
the prices of their fears
for the anger of the empty stomachs.

I never feel depth in them
I never find the men in their tears
I never feel in them any healing sensation.

Fears and tears matter
in hunger
in competitive circles
wherein the royals inhabit
to be adorned in all seasons.

Tears compensate
their hunger
and
their perpetual bondage
to the rich system
well framed for the poor.

Royal fingers silence me
shutting windows to the light
nipping green views in the buds
to continue their hide and seek games.
