Debargyha Ganguli


Love came
In between telephone wires –
In between the leaves
Of the acacias
In my front rail.
The waving dress
In summer sun
And a subtle whiff
Of saffron and coriander
Wafting over some unknown window.
I waited
As the crow waits
On telephone wires
For leftovers from the lunch.
We haven’t spoken in ages.
