The River Walks Without Shoes - Poem by Ram Krishna Singh

The river walks without shoes
unsinging the night's hooligans
that scamper across the city

unbreasted years ago for
hawks of peace now midgeted
to amuse mornings that gaol

all fire and thoughts smitted by stones
of figures-to-be hewing
new melodies by black grass

past my shadow overarching
all listening and light and cliff
that hang the tale or pain the legs

no matter I walk without
the rest of the ground I tead
like river droning day's ashes
