Treasure Island

Pranab K. Chakraborty

(West Bengal)

The Absolute


Repeatedly refused her
illumination
repeatedly turning my face back

as an insane
searched a place to hide
but the burning everywhere

mountains the bubbling zone
forests
ocean
sky-touched monuments
even the flesh
of my enslaved lady
my beloved hole

her presence makes me arrogant
arrogance melts into submission
and ultimately
I find me nowhere

was I anywhere
past present future...

The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
