(May 28,1973 / Dhaka)

See the day in my eyes


See the day in my eyes
See how the sun in them closes
And leaves the time
Mellow with pain:

It is a time
When forgotten memories
Fly everywhere
From the four corners
To roost
On one live wire,

This throbbing nerve running
Through my temple.

Come now old memories,
Come faded heart-weary flocks,
Dark against the sun;
Come thick and fast-
Better here than when you are
All over the place.

If I close my eyes
I deny my pain prematurely,
I deny the whole experience of red
That has been my Reality.

Let me live through this Hell,
Let me see the sky
Blacken slowly
As sultry wings hasten
To block out the light.

Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
