Rookie (Assam, India)

Speech


Is there any word
which is beyond word
speech which is beyond speech


Irony in the beginning


The pen I use to write
the words of my poems
is the same pen for listing
grocery items to buy


Yes
I have named this poem
‘Speech’ and
not ‘Words’


What is there in that
bank of word or
in this bank


‘This bank’ ‘that bank’
or ‘this river’ in between
are they just waterless words


Ideas and language
brain and heart
I temporarily take back
the ‘and’ in between
this ‘I’ itself at the end


Yet
when addressed “My Goldie”
my second son replies still
“Yes, my father”
***

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

Conscience is instinct bred in the house,
Feeling and Thinking propagate the sin
By an unnatural breeding in and in.
I say, Turn it out doors,
Into the moors.
