[02] Only Love - Poem by Ashraful Musaddeq

Who yarns in the morn on a tub
Smiles on the road under a litchi tree
Shies to open eyelids if sun stops beaming
Hesitates to move keeping zero pase?

Who feels the wave of blood circulation
Trusts a dranker talking incoherent
Dreams to walk with grasshopper
Drinks a can of grief under a kadam tree?

Who comes into flower on the air-
with unalike petals without calyx?

    Nice treat.
    But a bit abstract to me.
