Poem By Afsan Chowdhury

Poem By Afsan Chowdhury

You walked through the smell

of the street’s decaying flesh,

a half blind unfed dog halting the night

to beg for time from passer byes with mangled hands.


Are you sure, you don’t like maggots

Clinging lightly to the skin of the midnight street

like children abandoned by their families ?.


Blind people stand under half empty lamp posts

wearing loin clothes made of blood and memory

listening to the chants that bark their way

through the night wanting to be fed by apartment blocks

that reach out to clutch the sky like

addicts looking for a late night fix.
