Jagannath rao Adukuri


Theme


I am trying to find reasons
For silence. There is something
On my head, a towering gear
Smiling underneath is tough
All the time I have to balance
Against the whiff of wind
I am trying to find reasons
For speaking. When I find some
They are the same for silence
The headgear is precariously
Perched on my head, whichever.
The diamonds there glisten
In early morning silences
Between piercing train hoots
And old watchmen’s mutterings
I have now found my form
And my theme, my silence.
