To A Poet - Poem by Prayag Saikia

Plumb the depths of your mind,
you'll find him.

He's a pagan!
Somewhere in some corner
he's always present
defying the logic of Annunciation.

Are you a confused man then (?)

Yes, with relics enshrined in your heart,
you, baptised Bedouin,
you're very much confused
‘cos
you're a poet;
you can love a creator,
but can't trust him.
