Poems by Ram Krishna Singh

 
Poems by Ram Krishna Singh
 
 
***
 
They repeat blunders
out of ignorance
or kindness
 
to prove wisdom
bureaucrats
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)
