After A Rape! - Poem by AMITAVA MAZUMDAR

We shall not forget
We shall throw away our birthday cake

We’ll wear a smile in disguise
We’ve to hammer ourselves and alchemise
The Cross still dangles silently on our chest
And we pray and eat like a solemn guest

A rape over an old flesh and soul
She put her sobs in an invisible bowl.
