A POET TO MAHATMA GANDHI

JAYANTA MAHAPATRA

A POET TO MAHATMA GANDHI

I am afraid of the loneliness
I would share with you.
Some time
you must tell me,
so that I may know :
have you made me unjust?
As I complete the picture of a man
who calls his dog, pets it,
to make such things of life his own,
I hear again and again
a small explosion,
I try not to think of it at all,
but it keeps sounding
like a blare of my heartless laughter.
