Debasis Mukhopadhyay /the nodes of the maid of the mist/

The nodes of the maid of the mist

 
writings
that unveil her nodes
disappeared before too
sailing upon the broken knots of the waves
while the sky caught in her omphalos murmured Soledad
 
will any finch
come out again of
that murky mathematics
now eviscerating
life & lyricism
laid bare awaiting you
o sky
to come & encircle
the routine foreheads tending to
long needles
aching needles
sighing rhubarb
like lilies in her gushing sundown
 
my violin
that slayed many words
aligned afar in a sobbing worry of death
is just a rustling
inside her roots
wanting out
 
the blood you leave behind
in me
is now molting
like the black poppy skin of smoke
of the dead children of war
