A Smiling Face - Poem by Pinaki Dewan
She huddles herself like a foetus
submerged in bathtub plasma,
her screams are silent screams
that desacralize the night and the rain.
She blows her kisses across the edges
of a bloated sky, her love
accumulating in the clouds
that never fall, stay afloat intumescent.
Her screams are quiet screams
that fill a casket and empty a heart.
I see her gambolling among bamboos
and birds like a verdant strobe,
I see her dangling her naked legs
splashing lakewater, spreading her arms
in the snow, I see a smiling face,
that isn't anymore. There is a disgust.
