Poetry

Breaking news doesn’t break hearts anymore

Eerie wind creeps into the room beating windows

 

Now all news is breaking news etherizing the world

But no news seems to break hearts of the half-dead

 

A stone facing heavy rainfalls copes with a cyclone

Eyries fall with trees encountering a reckless storm

 

When a two-year-old tries to awake his mother

Lying motionless only to merge bit by bit with mud

 

You can’t help weeping as it must be breaking news

Yet you watch as if a stone and pass by the child 

 

Because hospitals are brimming with dying humans

Oxygen cylinders seem helpless before dead bodies

 

In a long melodrama puppets in masks are merely

Role-playing as ghosts gazing at the strange time
