Remembrance - Poem by CHOUDHURI SUKUMAR

At times I remember that hotel room
broken earthen pitcher, rattling fan
alert lizards on the naked wall
obstinate bed bugs,
frivolous noise from the tap, adorous air
gothic candlelight in darkness

At times I recollect
the hill station's silent main road

At midnight, the tipsy car
touched and fled past the rickshaw
The policing vigil

At times I reminisce that room, that darkness
light memories of going astray for one night
my liquor bottle, silent roads, uncertain fear
......I remmember at times
