Poetry 2017 Longlist, Minnu Varghese

I Don’t Dare To

Minnu Varghese

A blank white paper
Lays before me.
Instigating me to taint
That pure, serene thing
With its ugly,
Penetrating  blood,
Waits a weapon
Tempting me to imagine,
To carve there my rejected lines,
To unveil my suppressed faces,
To point out my languid finger,
To inscribe the unfavourable script.
I consult my heart,
In the backdrop of lub-dub,
It stays dumb.
Let the poor thing
Remain clean.

I don’t dare to…
