I Just Want To Say - Poem by Ayan Dasgupta

I just want to say this to you
It no longer matters how and where –
In the river
On the shore
In the suburbs or further uptown
Or even amidst the festering habitation
In full blown Eastman
With maudlin Sepia
In and out of colors…

It no longer matters

We don’t even need tête-à-tête for this
No Opera floors
No garden cafeteria,
Malls bistros or parks –
No Ivory Merchant, Fox Production
None whatsoever

Even you can be at one side of the street
With your voice raised over the sound of passing cars
Or maimed with incongruity
For not being able to make your point
It will never matter
As long as I can pass the word to you

You can make out in the evening
After work everyday you can stop by every possible den
Drawn to every bawdy trick
Apprehended or indifferent
To carry on the rolling throughout the day…
It hardly matters
For I will be with you
To whisper the magic in your ears –
The first faint line.
