Best Poem of Dr Tapan Kumar Pradhan

Wind In The Afternoon

An assault of cabbage leaves on the pavement
Tries vainly to cover up the manholes;
Splattered egg yolk on the serrated kerb:
Two men look from the window. Wind blows.

A young girl throws a loose bundle
Of waste material from the upper balcony -
The red one is an empty tea carton;
And anything spongy white, thin and long
Could be a woman's sanitary napkin.
            I said, <i>maybe</i>!

More winds; howlings; frightened cows scurrying.
<em>Unseasonal winds might lead to ...

but nothing happened.


I took her hands
and suddenly kissed,
nothing she said -

then it happened.
