2 new poems by Kushal Poddar : 29th April, 2022 & The Noir Heart

29th April 2022

The coffee, born cold, takes its sweet time.
I wait, my eyes - half and half. My patience 
moonwalks through the shrapnel of wee hours' dreams.

The invasion of reality assesses the assets
intact and the assets lost.
You say out of context, "After a certain age
men need only one candle on top of their cakes."

I am more concerned about the line of control.
A wish-breath remains loaded in my lungs' silo.

The Noir Heart

"Examine your desire."
The priest says.
They become two last leaves
on the dying tree,
and the moon and its
siamese shadow on the rain water.

Tim speaks first on behalf of his
desire, his heart,
"To kill the husband of my liver."
An owl slashes through.
The priest nods, "Now that you
have said so, he is dead and reborn
in his next breath."
