What Is Poetry To Jayanta Mahapatra? - Poem by Bijay Kant Dubey

What is poetry for Jayanta? ,
If somebody asks him,
What will it be the answer?
Poetry is physics and vice versa,
Poetry is women studies, rural studies,
Poetry is feminism, realism,
Poetry is post-modernism, post-colonialism,
Poetry is imagery and imagism,
Poetry is private reflections,
Poetry a visit to Odisha.

Poetry a delving into the layers of
Consciousness,
The unconscious, the sub-conscious
And the unconscious,
Poetry existential, a dip in nothingness,
Poetry nihilism,
Poetry eco-centric, poetry linguistic,
Poetry poetry,
Poetry of physics, light and darkness theories,
The big bang description.
