Post-postmodern Love

Post-postmodern Love

A Poem by Md. Ziaul Haque

Love needs a definition new and smart,

In this post-postmodern age of ours,

Bodily attraction defeats the union of souls,

More important have become kisses and touches than the heart.


The lovers have sent Plato and his ‘ism’ to an eternal hibernation,

Concentrating on the parts unseen,

With them ok it is, don’t realise how unlovely it is, how mean!

Falling in love now is like flying a kite with no passion.


Indebted those lovers are to the face[less] book,

An ocean helping them to go for a dip, to search, to look!
