Apocalypse by Kushal Poddar

Art work by Emily Kray

Remember this - no cops visit the neighborhood

since the pestilence. Let's rob the powerless

ice-cream parlor naked.


The streets survive the fulmination of grass.

I devour a hodgepodge burger until I remember

hunger shall return to diminishing resources.


Let's rob something. Naked.

Tim says, he needs to bury his mother

sometimes soon. The refrigerator dies away.

I promise him to write a new series of funeral rites.

And a new religion. We lord the swarm. The fittest.

A poet and a father, Kushal Poddar, edited a magazine - ‘Words Surfacing’, authored seven volumes of poetry including ‘The Circus Came To My Island’, 'A Place For Your Ghost Animals', 'Eternity Restoration Project- Selected and New Poems' and 'Herding My Thoughts To The Slaughterhouse-A Prequel'.
