Gone Awry
by Dr. Sutapa Chaudhuri

Look dearie!!! 
Wanna watch?                             
Look’ere Son!               
Catch it now!
Playin’ action …               
Watch’n' see!!                 
Lots’a cunnin’,
Sleigh’ of hand,                       
Juggl’rs tricks…                     
Magic’s own –                                   
Falsities!                          
’n Down, down, down,
Drops the birdie, - THUUD!!           

Hop’n a jump           
Sets th’ rhythm.
Aim’s done                                  
Arrows taut
Shot high straight                            
Upwards too!
Stin’ y’ur heart                                 
Whooosh
Like that, - CAUGHT!!

Crawling, sliding, creeping, slowly
Nets a snare
Gostho Cuz’n –              
Steppin’ out,                            
Basket borne…
Arrows get                                    
Th’ creature down, - NOW!!

Oh Dear mee!                                 
All awryy!!!                 
Dup’d ’n gone…
Heyy Cuz’n ’ou,
Senile sudd’n?                      
Scrunchin’ past y’ur                      
Ribby cages                        
Did th’ arrow                                     
Zoom unawares - ZAP!!?    

*This poem is a free translation of a famous Bengali poem ‘Phoske Gelo’
