Inam Hussain Mullick writes

"I died in Palestine I died in Kashmir" 

I died in Palestine
I died in Kashmir
I am history’s corpse. 

Curfewed souls forget to laugh
The gardens are quiet
My corpse is kicked away to somewhere unknown 

I died knowing my little brother was also dying.
The number on my body vanishes soon enough, 

I am too far away
from the festival of butterflies.
