Poems by Ram Krishna Singh

Poems by Ram Krishna Singh
They repeat blunders
out of ignorance
or kindness
to prove wisdom
join hands with
politicians and journalists
who appear
in mating season
like dogs in
October and November
and perpetuate the blur
around the hole
to stand in the queue
of decaying ancestors
The watery weather
continues to shatter
the mortal shell
one by one
washes the paints
that hide the face
— R K Singh
From MY SILENCE (1985)
