A Portrait Of Poets - Poem by Bijay Kant Dubey

The poster boy
Of modernism.

Lal the director
Of Writers Workshop,

The confessional poetess
Malyalee and autobiographical.

The Parsi poet
Searching the self.

The missing man
Found again.

Arun Kolatkar
The Marathi poet
And a painter to Jejuri.

Arvind with
The white flowing
Beards going surreal.

Going to Leeds
And returning back.

Shiv K. Kumar
Struck by the frescoes
Of Khajuraho and Konark.

Dom the Goan journo
Emptying bottles
To be an English poet.

Gieve keeping a patient
Etherised upon a table operating not,
But seeing with the stethoscope.

Pritish Nandy
A lover
Quite under adolescent love.

Dilip Chitre
Travelling and travelling
With his father.

The suitable boy not,
Most unsuitable boy.

Romen Basu
Dividing his time
Between India and the foreign.

R.Rabindranath Menon
Urban and modern,
Dealing with the city-space.

In the theatre of silence

Krishna Srinivas
A poet
Transcendental and referential.

Pronab Kumar Majumder
Reading time,
Marking the watch, the clock and the tower.

Maha Nanda Sharma
Epical and Mahabharatan,
Mitonic and Aurobindean.

Dwarakanath H.Kabadi
With the three-liner flickers.

Narenderpal Singh
Talking with the foreigner girls
At airports and in embassies.
