The Calamity – A Poem

The Calamity poem Alok Mishra poet author

As the sun goes high

in the east, it rises,

what will happen

to the beast and ghosts

of my mother’s stories?

truth always has

many versions of lies

until we know what’s true.

Ghosts and beasts

will all rise again

when the sun slips

into the day’s pain.
