Sankhajit Bhattacharjee Poem 280

Scientific Research Fellow in University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee

I Saw Her

I saw her

inside A.C. car

moving for office

paying heed to none, not even to traffic police.

I saw her

taking in city air

running with child for school

in heat keeping head cool.

I saw her

working in house as if waging war

no doubt a maid

always be paid.

I saw her

carrying bricks on shoulder

taking no rest

her baby crying for breast.

I saw her

inside a park at the corner

calling men

a tasty roasted chicken.

I saw her

meditating at temple round the year

so calm and cool

spiritually full.

I saw her

managing state affair

bold like lion king

challenging everything.

I saw her

dancing in a bar

inside picture tube

dissolving men like sugar cube.
