Poetry by Sutputra Radheye
(1) when she walks away she melts the snowflakes as raphael stares to draw lines and exhibit in a gallery in Paris where woody allen would direct a film on her untamed skin before the midnight grows old and falls down she causes earthquakes in multiple planets with each step marching forward as eyes gather to glimpse the art that inspired raphael to move away from God and draw Eve (2) If anyone asks you Who are you? Tell them You are violence The violence of the sickle That a farmer carries The violence of the hammer That a majdoor uses The violence of words That Paash vomited The violence of dissent That proletariats hold In their warm hearts *majdoor is a labourer *Paash is a Punjabi poet
