Poem -River: Morning – Yuyutsu Sharma

Cruel river 

knows each time 

I come to brood 

over her roaring waters 

each time I come 

to her deafening banks 

to gleam my dreams 

over the plump flanks of her warm body 

each time I come 

to pour last of my life’s salt 

in the ringing gorges 

of her sonorous frame, 

a bone breaks 

in my smoldering chest 

and a wrinkle appears 

across the shriveled leaf of my life.
