to see past the belly or Yemen, by Debasis Mukhopadhyay | I am not a silent poet

(for Antony Owen) bones roll emptily in failed bodies the puddle of skies so brilliant likeness of mouths fractured into the musk of food each air strike spangles eyes in every crevice millions across someone’s piano millions across your poem millions across my untitled sketches of babies so brilliant to scavenge their own deaths

surprise

Today I woke up to a nice surprise: I appear as a featured poet on G Jamie Dedes’ site The Poet by Day, an amazing information hub for poets & writers. It was not enough for her to feature just three of my poems! She almost staged my whole WordPress site, showcasing my bio, photo, academic work reference & my chapbook & other poems’ links! Bloody! Who does that? She has been extremely supportive of my work all through, I can’t thank her enough. But this ain’t no surprise, those who know Jamie know she’s doing a great job not only for the literary community but for social justice, sustainability and peace! Cheers Jamie!
