2 micropoems
by Bhaswati Ghosh


Sunset and Moonrise in Kumaon

A film song carries the
background score of
the hills and the

weight of its sunsets.
An opacus swallows
friends’ Laughter.

The moon is a
torn heart tonight.
What price

The bondage of
togetherness —
Fleeting or longer?

My head in the middle
of a sun-slathered snowy
Himalayan range. A spectre

locked in eternity. Do the
Treacherous cliffs
Have elasticity of memory, too?


Nocturne 3

In my breath
howling winds war with
nocturnal wings, flapping.

Your hands smoothen
my breast. The full moon
courts arrest.

On the narrow gauge of
sleeplessness, smoking
silence chugs along.

A plane gnaws on
the sky’s cold flesh

The wounded night
awaits an
ooze-soaking dawn.
