Between Quanta

A Poem by Swagato Saha

For long I’d seen thy silent glow whilst the years revolved,
Aboard cars in transit swift or poised in high abode;
Like the moon your crudeness slips through glass unresolved,
Till despair’s stroll tonight, my feet serve the friendless road…

“Unruled, dispersed, it spins and crawls,”

To be chased alas by serpentine wheels, baby steps tire uncared-
And stone-eyed pavements offer no room but for the blinding glares;
Do they deem me guilty o’ on the run, ‘gainst the steel barricades?
Up curtained cells like vampire eyes shadow my escapades!

“To forbidden spheres forth nuclear hauls…”

Heed haem-nails on iron gates growl, hostile to human flesh,
So sirens sound like feudal horns and charges clog the mesh,
The soulless dark devours the cries of homeless hordes that flee,
As I must for what tells us ‘part, to the watchmen on decree…

“Till when revealed; all waves thus fall -”

Past the creats of night ‘way named doors, I recoil whence I came,
All to a sleepy sky shall I hope to breathe nay fall off frame,
’Twas much to ask; I fear it reads - “The roof is marked off bounds.”
Where glassy-eyed spectres breed, discrete ‘cross nothing-grounds.

“Shrunk in sight to severed scrawls.”
