A Fish Drifted Across the Seas by Kushal Poddar – Love Thy Neighboring Country Series

A Fish Drifted Across The Seas

“During a gunfight,” says the fishmonger
about a scar as long as this country’s map
flashing whenever he dips his head
or lets it upraise against the gloaming’s glory.

We’ve heard that story; ask for it nonetheless.
How a refugee can involve himself
in a skirmish with a cop who has not shot
any subject or any dream featuring his ex.

The fish he sells doesn’t smell fresh always.
We love to purchase from him nonetheless.

Un/Non Sellable Poem by Kushal Poddar – Love Thy Neighboring Country Series

Un/non sellable Poem

Let’s make children for
those detention centers,
one more, once more.

In the cells of vapor
a face becomes the other.
The other another.

All return, you know;
only you don’t know
what they look like 

A bird on your shower room
window sill stares at you
as if you’re its day’s grain or its genesis.
