Subrata Augustine Gomes

Rookie (07-January-1965 / Dhaka, Bangladesh)


The moon of Mars
Or it may be Jupiter’s—
I’ll never know what caused it to traverse
This part of the universe.

Yet it’s a moon, and because it’s a moon,
I’ll fix my gaze at it and hold
My paddle tight and soon
Row away from this earthen world.

(Translated from Bangla by the poet)
