Poetry 2018 Longlist, Priyanka Roy Banerjee


This repetitive exercise of

stirring, shaking, being…

Flexing muscles to laugh

when it doesn’t even matter…


Of fragrant, steaming rice,

aromatic meat, spices

necessary to congeal relationships..

Under starry nights, the woody odour of

bourbon blends with the sour of wine…

What if it didn’t?


C’est la vie? No, c’est un reverie,

A dream that must spawn more…

where each fights the other, to

exist, excel, and evaporate into

clouds of the life that we dream of.
