Bhartendu Second

Rookie (5-7-1970 / India)

Now Or Ever

there is a sky
beyond the reach
of that starving child

his hunger
his dimming eyesight
even before it could look
at the world of joys

that child is not
a poetic enigma
but the haunting face
of a real world

refusing to offer anything
better to him
now or ever
