An Indian English Poet But Without An English Wife


An Indian poet in English, but without an English wife,
How can it be,
A poet of English language and literature
But without an English wife,
White and European,
How can it be,
What sort of poet is he,
Perhaps a duplicate poet?

Without an English wife, English or American,
I do not know
If one will be able to write good poems
In English,
As because English is English
And demands it Englishness,
Not Indianness,
One dressed in dhoti and kurta
Or passing leisurelytime
In a lungi.

For to be an English poet, an English wife is a must
As the tone and intonation
Has to be of England
Or the slanting from America,
The United States of America,
Not it is that English will appear
to be a vernacular of India
In pronunciation
And the other the poet must wear
A T-shirt and the tight jeans pants.

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
