Star Page – Sreekanth Kopuri

Below is a brand new poem written by Sreekanth Kopuri – one of the star page features from Issue 1.

His other works being published on our blog to look out for in the next few weeks are:

Rain Again

Distance

A New Normal

Another Egg

of a summer-white smile

of another Easter,

*

a sunny lesson

of a luminescent morning

*

laid against the sands

of some more circles,

*

the grace that loves

every handful of dust, waits

*

under those warm wings

of Love’s patient time

*

that hatches for the

earth’s last pages

*

that flicker in its ears

whispering the secret

*

that will crack open with

a cluck – a sign of last trumpet. 

A New Normal

you’ll face consequences you’ve never seen in history

                                                       -Vladimir Putin  

Since a single death

is a tragedy,

a million battalions

slither for beyond

along a road not taken

abiding by a decree

of a cold blooded hand

that contemplates to send

Big Boys or Fattest men against

the desperate flutter of doves

sedating the peoples’ psyche

for a new normal

that must stoicize the earth

into an existential oneness

towards an apocalyptic preoccupation.
