I Am Suffering From Insomnia

I am suffering from insomnia

I spend sleepless nights.
The cry of a newborn baby,
abandoned in Ramna Park,
renders Sukantu’s declaration a lie.

Sitting on the sidewalk, under the shade of a banyan tree,
near the Ministry of Foreign Affairs
who is she, begging with pale sad eyes?
A tired hungry child cries,
his hands clutching her shoulders.

As I look at her why does the face
of an Afghan boy, his face torn
by cluster bomb, rise before my eyes?

Why do I see the faces of young people,
