The Maggots Poem by Kamala Das

The Maggots

Rating: 3.4


At sunset, on the river ban, Krishna
Loved her for the last time and left...

That night in her husband's arms, Radha felt
So dead that he asked, What is wrong,
Do you mind my kisses, love? And she said,
No, not at all, but thought, What is
It to the corpse if the maggots nip?

[from The Descendants]

Wow! ! ! She's good. I like the type of women she writes about, her metaphors, imagery and simple language ??
