Poetry 2018 Longlist, ANDREW KAI HANGSING

Suspended Roar

On deaf ears, our pleas fell;

Once again, we’ve derailed

And our roar for our share

Is suspended mid-air

Like the dust particles

Kicked up by vehicles –

Rising to some extent,

Reaching out to heaven

Until the wicked rain

Pulls them down to the drain –

Such is the fate of those

Who, in resentment, rose!

 

Were it Delhi, maybe,

We’d be easier to see!

Or is this Haflong’s fog

Thicker than all those smog?
