Blood And Bones

Satish Verma

A body of fear
blooms like the desert.
The bizarre womb
delivers the virgin

The Earth moans,
I will not send the moon
across the continents.

How two persons
can live in one body?
It was a blood feud.

You walk into
your ancestral home,
where you died in the corner
of dark room.

Where the mirror
was placed? I don't
remember. I climb the
attic to cover the bones
of father.

When we will get
the judgment? The city
burns again.
