Four Tanka- Ram Krishna Singh (India)

 


FOUR TANKA

 

-         Ram Krishna Singh (India)

                              

 

1

 

dining table

resting place for the dust

my mind emits

before her third eye opens

I switch on the AC

 

 

2

 

a one-eyed woman

the window curtain shakes

nightly stillness

veronal dread in hell

breeches itch in half-sleep

 

 

3

 

can’t tackle big beasts

and the sheeple that snigger

candle procession:

read silent tears on the cheeks

of the mother of the lynched

 

 

4

 

in the white of night

sighs for supreme delight

steal tender pleasure

manipulating wetness

in bed unmask simple sin
