Poem: The Jumping Tongues and The Stony Ears

By: Pijush Kanti Deb

jumping tongues
Encircling a building
a hot chain of dry tongues
starts shouting
sitting on an unrecognized demand
compelling the stony ears-
quite comfortable inside the building
lying on their pride and contumacy,
to stand up on their own toes,
protruding their eyes to a guillotine
beheading by turn
their all clones
reflected from their own mirrors.
Snail gets salt at last
to stretch the ears up
to the jumping tongues
and allow them to penetrate
the stoic wall of resistance
to snatch even the brain out
for its washing and painting
as per their tastes and preferences.
