Gopal Lahiri writes


in the breath of fire 
our over protected shadows 
Recall long night.

Freedom candles love to burn 
One can buy even heaven.

the perfect alibis of working class 
taming the moral compass 
make you a favourite.

With a surprise and sense 
More mirthful  
The hawk dives on you.

Scavenging filth in the back alley.

Even amidst a crowd 
Question faces shaking hands.

Before my silent prayer for you 
America is singing 
That's happiness
