A Modern Indian Woman Calling Herself A Poetess Of India Not England - Poem by Bijay Kant Dubey

A modern woman calling herself a poetess
Modern, colourful, painted and gay,
Bobbed, hi-fi, modn and contemporary,
Urban and of city space
Calling herself a poetess,
Not of India, but of England,
Looking like a sadhvi with a rudrakhsmala
But is not,
A Rajneeshite,
With the golden specs on the eyes,
Ay, the lens-eyed lady
After applying and attempting
Herbal and other cosmetics
A girl in a beauty contest
Doing a catwalk,
A copycat she
With a red spot on the forehead,
Iron, sea shell and gold bangles
On the wrists,
Reciting poetry
And shaking the golden brown hair
As if were a beauty queen,
Not a poetess.
