A Frightened Drake - Poem by Rahman Henry

*[ An online letter to HER ]



Here, in Bangladesh, a glazing sky burns,
Long trunk of eucalyptus burns in solitude,

This winter came here as direct as sudden death,
Now running towards picnic.

A blanket of darkness conceals
Something inside its womb;

In your area, a frightened drake
Looking for the Fort Worth Metroplex, alone,
Fidgets and quacks in Grapevine Lake;


Can you hear the sound?
