Poem: After Your Speech

By: Kousik Adhikari

the speech

After your speech
I shall laugh
I have taken this inevitable oath.
To remain silent,
Extreme, impossible, cruel,
The annoyed eyes of the fish
Starves the whole night for moon,
When gentle breeze blows
It sleeps aside at peace,
The deep cold breath
From the river plate
Actually take you in debt
And it will take me too.
