Joyce Strolls Around the Labyrinth
He holds the pages closer and looks through them Nothing. His words have turned their back on him They seem to form a pattern, constantly pushing around He tries to bring order and worse they grow Anxious, leaves them to struggle and perish His translations of William Oscar Yeats Wilde simply gap at him If only someone would direct him a Grant or even a Pound! He always senses an oddity with language Letterx, wordx, phrasex, sentencex and paragraphs of utter nonsensex At times, he escapes into the stream of his consciousness Wherein cacophony he upholds and abhors chronology Presently, recalling Odysseus his mind Blooms To a similar journey he embarks, but only Around the labyrinth of his mind Bio: Anisha Kaul (she/ her) is a poet with a Master's in English Literature, presently living in New Delhi, India.
