SANTANU HALDER

(BONGAON, NEAR KOLKATA)

Nothing I Know


I do not know,
The whys, hows and the whens
Of life,
The syllables of life
The dashes, the hyphens
And pauses of life,
The inverted commas,
And long parted traumas
Of life,
The aims of life, the games of life,
The forms of life, the norms of life,
Only I know that,
Nothing I know,
And no need to know,
what I know not.
That is all.

Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
