Carried Off In A Flood - Poem by murari sinha

the open-hair magnolia remains standing
putting a hand on the window-bar
of the camellia

i think of knowing from her
through sending a pink-letter
who have gone in the fall of night
crossing the border
on foot

and who have like to deposit
the spoilt water-chestnut
on the obsolete narrow-gauge

does the wild moon ever take hot water
from the slow river-quay of this city

following the rein-deer
it seems
his t-shirt has also disappeared

the pictorial cave-writings gradually
putting their flag down
on the cornice of clouds
that return home in the evening

why the sinthi with it flows
has smeared so much green

on this operation table
which wind brings in
so much lemon leaves

and why
so much light of carried off in a flood
has overflowed the blossoms of the brinjal
