Day 51 (April 10)

….memories now
are like the shifting borders
on your maps
shimmering descending
frozen fractals
blurring the sharp edges
dividing
whats past and whats not
whats here and whatneverwas
still
when i walk through
those unremembered lanes
the snow crunches
deafeningly
under jackboots
while pandits
antinationalize
and decide
that today
life and
family and
sweets and
toys
will only exist
on this side

and yet….

 

Listening to Kashmir
