Magic - Poem by Masud Khan

Like when a piece of iron falls in love with a piece of wood
Causing the iron to float on water,
Or like when the magic of love casts a spell
Making stone float on liquid,
For ages, in nation after nation,
People contrive to float stones,
For diverse reasons and occasions,
Letting love and desire take diverse forms in manifold texts and discourses.....

Translated by Fakrul Alam, Writer, Editor, Professor of English, University of Dhaka.
