-Srishti Dutta Chowdhury
trimmed claws across gran’s terracottaterrace sounds of a lonely conchshelledanklet,
as a wayward windmill lands against notes of sonatamoonlit,
auburnish-yarned-fur steps across stackedkeysbrown,
i will rush back to the moonfield soon, cross
crookedsweater knitted neat-right.
