R.K Das

Rookie (22, january / INDIA)


The chain of mortal moments
Was perennially pampered
By the emotional interventions
Of brittle smiles and joyous episodes
And occasional visitations by
A world of make-beliefs
In the face of a fine suspicion
Of a suspension of disbelief.

The erosion of beliefs and actions sets in
And soon becomes chronic
By the casual pronouncement of
A virus-ridden rude syllable
Thrown at a disadvantaged-player
On a grass court.

It was a crystal idiocy of epic-dimension
To try to stitch the tattered Time
With a golden needle using gossamer.
