So - Poem by Samir Roychoudhury

Beneath five feet three inches deep within the subject lives
the rat of circus company
in four millimeter depth of feelings reckless shiverings have
booked their tickets
Oh Sir, nobody uses the Jadavpur subway for road crossing
during night aristocrat lunatics sleep thereat
a passenger queried- is the taxi-meter OK?
I delivered a counter- is the country OK?
In front of Tollygunj Metro both flyover and subway are being constructed
that does not mean pedestrians will not come under wheels
how will then media-fedia dailies-failies run
do you know how many cameramen are there? how many taxies in city?
If rats wither away there wont be cats
keep those consciousness-business with yourself
Are you able to see distance in rats and concealment in cats?
That's all, rotate the steering, in case I don't get
taxiful passengers, I'd go on sharing basis
Translation of 'TO'
