One poem by SALONI KAUL


Our revolutionary dreams clamped on tight
By poised embossers hard at work
Lest they should slip into oblivion
Gain visibility and permanence
In salient relief on the decorative fore.

The stately curve carved by the westward steering sun
Clean clear as a chalcographer’s chart canvas scroll
Has with the fleet concurrence of the sky
Plotted each move, sketched each movement illustrious
In these ultimate ulteriors undivulged,
The stamping ground of the intelligentsia.                                                                       

Beguiling as a climb that culminates
Then in the comprehensive survey broad worldview,
Idyllic the seat on the belvedere
With all the approbations of the starry skies
And close collecting clouds for a crowd.

  1. The poem's architecture is fascinating and I like the sense of being transported to worlds higher and elsewhere the poet has led me to.
