Snapshots of…

By Barnali Nandi Mazumder


Thudding heartbeats escorting me through the unknown faces into a maze of lanes:
Lanes of more unknown faces and coloured sequins and reflecting glasses;
Reflecting eyes -sad, greedy, lusty, fearing more unknown eyes:
Eyes that penetrate through the glasses into the unfulfilled desires.
Sticky arms, sweat infused perfumes, nauseate me.
I lose control as the mob’s rhythm pushes me forward and backward until I feel the sand;
Sand numbs my feet hurt by the concrete lanes and boot shovels.

The mob has given way to sparse faces going into the darkness of the beating, thudding waves.
I breathe for the first time; I inhale the deep sound into my entire being.
My feet dig forward towards the waves as saline sprinkles wet my feet ushering me into the loud thunders;
The thunders travel through my heart to my feet to my eyes,
Which see the neon balls in the belly of the waves.
He procreates in the lap of the sands;she gathers them to her breasts.
Before she can let them suck her breasts, He snatches away and swallows them and procreates yet again until He gobbles them.
Again I awake to the sea,
And feed myself to the belly of the waves
Delivering and snatching all over again until the waves gobble me.
Now we are brothers,
Now we are sisters,
Into the depth of the sea.


About the author: I am an urbanite wandering the streets of the city awaiting to fulfill my destiny. I scribble once in a while to ease myself. [Read More]
