Earth, My Love - Poem by Prayag Saikia

He informed me
The earth is ailing
I told him
My love is ailing
He told me
An atomic kiss
And radioactivity

I told him
About the blood spitting exhalation
Of my love

A battlefield
On the bosom of the
Beloved earth

His
And
Mine
War-ravaged psyche

(Translated from Original Assamese by Bibekananda Choudhury)
