Mundane Moments - Poem by CHOUDHURI SUKUMAR

When vacuousness approaches, the rosy apples
Continue to linger on sleepless saucer. The crunchy teeth
Where passions glittered, rest a concrete silence
Lustless hands hung loosely across the heart

When does nihility approach. Why does it come
ruminating manay a loner eve rolls by
The beard lengthens, nails, hair and unsociability
Disrupting doorbell I lie down in vacuum
Devoid of enlightement

And once again I became aware of the friction of teeth
And observe hands and cruel teeth
Engrossed once again in munching apples
