Chanchal Kumar – The View

The View

The window has its eyelids open
Squinting at occupiers.
Or with its jaws parted wide
Its dual tongues mocking everybody.
Or maybe a mouth forcibly exposed-
Half hands keeping it alive to the world,
Showing you what you wish to see:
The evergreen tree
or its few yellowing leaves.
