Best Poem of Dileep Jhaveri

For those annihilated in riots

For those annihilated in riots, enduring and upright,
to whom history has granted no justice whatsoever
Long before I started scribbling letters
you were already ink.
You were the forest
which had proliferated
around the trifling shoot that was I,
blending earth, sunlight, water for me.
You were the language
around my first utterance.

You were smoke, steam, lava
sulphur, phlegm that was coughed out,
carbon chunks, chlorophyll,
bubbling blobs of fat,
a slithering mesh of fibres
clinging together
to forge fragile protection for life.
