Title: The Biting Soul
Author: Pijush Kanti Deb

Poem: A dogmatic life longs to be on the floor
to dance on the rhythm
of a haughty and naughty heart
stimulated by the addition of a keen discernment
in life and heart
along with up-to-date sagacity and black magic,
creating a plain under the table
and tempting pockets to welcome
seas and oceans with their entire treasures
leaving propriety unheard outside the door.
The remaining virtue still peeps for a while,
throws away its useless plumbline
and joins in the blind manís buff
to allow the shadow of wealth and resources
causing an eclipse on the rules and regulation
provoking the old soul -
made in heaven,
to enter the workshop to make a sharp tooth-set
for its starting of unabated biting
on the soft part of its beloved heart and life
to bring their consciousness back on the right track....
