By Being Ardhanarishwara I Trying To Taste Ram Krishna Singh’s Poetry - Poem by Bijay Kant Dubey

People often talk about sex and sexual dreams
As did they Vatsyayana, Freud, Lawrence, Rajneesh,
Judith Wright, Anne Sexton and Kamala Das,
But want I see R.K.Singh’s poetry
From a different angle
Unsexing, desexing the readerly self
As the transgenders do,
Dance the eunuchs.

Shiva as Ardhanarishwara, in a half-male, half-female,
Half-masculine, half-feminine form
Blessing with the hands held aloft
As the eunuchs emulate it
After making the newly-borns dance
As per the ritual
So want I to read him.
