Sreekanth Kopuri


a tear runs down
the earth’s eye

a sandpiper tethers along
these sandy dunes of
a prolonged absence

here a half sunk boat
dilapidated by broken dreams
stinks of dead fish

birds winter again
and the silence of desire
worms the blood
before the soul’s last flight
to the bleeding Sun
