Special Announcement

Songs From Kashmir

I want to write about the man making announcements

to finally liberate my land

with his technology and

his special task force

following the orders of the New India

to save my last inch of dignity

with films and food.

Only that I won’t.

Instead I will sit here

and meditate for the rest of my life

on the nudity

of the saint-poetess

both of the Shiva and the Sufis

claiming there was no man

she saw in her life

only sheeps


Vaishali Paliwal
