Participation In History.

Poem By Subhadip Bhattacharya

He reads long fought battles.
Discoveries made long ago.
Travelers challenged in unknown lands.
Of discoveries made
with not much of ado.

Of swords, guns, cannon balls
of tents, written documents discovered.
Of marlinespike...
channel discovery seen
with a child's delight.

Of sword fight, knights,
trench warfare, grenade...
Of a sword
that ran through
his chest.
Remained there
to put all the restlessness at rest.

And slumber covering his face
in a lover's nest.
Under the tent,
under a blanket.

Incomplete Love

The darkness in the heart,
and the light in the eye,
matches the incomplete love,
of life and human nature and landscape.

Love Of The Body.

Cancer is such that it kills
The cells of the body.
It copulates in itself and slowly
Destroys the affected area of the body.

Licking The Day.

Do some excérsize.
Licking the day.
The midday afternoon. When everyone
is sleeping.

Depression Going Places.

The morning sun shines and washes
Away all the grief and sorrow.
The journey now begins over the
Mountains and oceans.


Am I ordinary?
Standing question in the midst of the
Hot and humid evening with
Standstill of wind and motion.


Denial, depression, anger, bargains
Happiness, joy, joyride
