Who said memory is
a fragrant window opening on
ripe corn fields? That
our bodies grow cold
as the sun grows dim there?

Who Said is a poem of waiting as the poems of Jayanta Mahapatra are, but the imagery keeps changing the track of and so the thoughts and ideas swapping places and situations. Here the language employed is one of the modernist idiom of expression, so imagistic too at the same moment of deliberation.
