Poetry at Sangam



“Feast-of-love sky in the room…” by Joy Goswami

(Translated from the Bengali by Sampurna Chattarji.)

Feast-of-love sky in the room
Swinging moon on the floor
The lantern beside the bed
All it does is blink
All night the new moon
Slices the road into thin strips
Still looking for a corpse worthy
Of writing a single shred of poetry
