Best Poem of Arvind Krishna Mehrotra

Where Will the Next One Come from

The next one will come from the air
It will be an overripe pumpkin
It will be the missing shoe

The next one will climb down

The next one I will have to sow
For the next one I will have

It will rise like bread

It will be the curse coming home
