in short

Kolkata (the other page  in the series with Banga entries: Amaar Harano Diner Thikana)
Entry 1

A Midnight Call

Somebody calls remembering to keep
A promise made
A midnight call
Douses the tired brain-cells
With rest and peace.

You nestle
In the dark, cosy, probably secret corner
Of another mind
Comfortable – as in a borrowed blanket, in a strange cold place!

You curl up
And with deliberate abandon
Allow yourself
To slide down the abyss
Of sweet succouring slumber –

Too tired to reason
Simply relieved
At the end of a long wait.
Entry 2

After Midnight

When the call comes through?

When the call comes through
you are too comforted
Even to feel happy
You let your mind hover –
On the edge
Of feeling and understanding and reason
While the body Is at rest.
