From vintage eyes

Painting by Suhas Roy

From vintage eyes,
stained poetry stares
across creases in distant blurs;
pernicious intuitions
wallow in acrid fate, re-
fluxing life,
after-life, in medleys of dishevelled
solitude.

Her widowed brow weeps
buds of savage red;
unforgiving fears litter sleepless
dreams, undeveloped,
skeptic negatives with gelatin flaws

permanent accusations.

  1. unforgiving fears litter sleepless
    dreams, undeveloped,
    skeptic negatives with gelatin flaws–such polished, powerful, masterful lines you have written, Mohana! I am reminded of leafing through old, very old, family photo albums, seeing sad-eyed, bitter looking Victorian era female ancestors looking just like this!
