crimson acres

written by: Aroop Mitra

 

you locked
up shadows
in old chests
with rusty hinges
and ramshackle fittings
these fields of tulips
seemed steeped
in blood & the weight
a thousand years
suspend on fragile
frame all too human
the trees accuse
indifferent skies
while swathes of falcons
recycle from remote
fastnesses in spirals
they breed.
