Knock on the door


(A poem in Kannada by Mamta Sagar translated into English by the poet)

Knock on the door
from outside, from inside
Doors that open from this side are
thrust forcefully from that side.
Darkness barges in,
drags the lights out to the streets
anarchy, turmoil, an utter chaos…

when the dark spreads the inside out;
those that sleep under their cosy
concealed blankets
never see the RED of the blood
seeping under their dark sheaths
knocks, not so frequent
are now heard often from every side!

NOTE: This poem came as a response to the arrest of five activists in India on the 28 Aug 2018. They were blamed by the State as ‘urban naxals’.
