When I Die

Poem By Dr. Ramesh Chandra Mukhopadhyaya

When I die my skin and bones will mingle with the earth
my blood plasma and all other secretions of the body will mingle with water
my breath will be one with air
the heat that keeps me alive will merge with fire and
the empty space in me will go back to the skies
What will happen to the_ I _ of mine then?
A doll made of earth dissolves
and what will become of its pricetag and of the sticker on it?

Te minions of Time carry the palanquin of the body

Inside the body the Mind is seated

A Tall Man

i saw atall man on the road
a crescent moon showed up in his matted hair
and i longed to greet him and i bowed
and he vanished into thin air


X is lonely and Y is lonely
and two lonely men meet and unite
and their lonelines is doubly redoubled
their begging bowls join and become two plus

A Journey

I didnot board on a train

I didnot go by bus

The Virtuial Reality

The eagle excelsiored to the zenith
and saw the purgatorio beneath
flooded with poetry
where humans grovel in a wilderness
