Sankar Roy – Ⅱ

Resigning for the Good Cause  





Say it – you’re done. You delivered what you could deliver.

It is okay


that you couldn’t. Now you want to be that cow



puts a bunch of fresh-cut chrysanthemum into its mouth  relish.

It is alright


if that cow does not return as Buddha in another life.



that great stupa was built, you were not there.



if ferns and vines want to reclaim what was taken from them once,

don’t try


to stop them. You did not cause the tropicanas to bleed



emperors convert into oracles.

It is you


who always smells like iron in an iron factory.



dusty closet, these grubby clothes,

is you.


You deserve a good meal and some sleep.
