a poem by Pushpalata Venugopalan, India

In a sea
of faces hostile;
Not daring to meet
the greedy eyes,
Set to devour
all within sight.

I approach some faces
Seemingly kind,
But shy away
When nearing I find;
Their eyes a-mocking,
Fingers accusing
Point at random.
(Reasoning at rest
Flowing with the rest.)

Their talons
rake up with glee
The hurt buried
deep inside me!

I pass a glen
so full of men
gathered for fun
at the expense
of other men!

I withdraw
silently into the night
to gleam a sight
of souls pure
who'd ignore
bodies mortal
and concentrate
upon the soul!
