Women Who Write Poetry
by Nalini Priyadarshni
Bookmark and Share
 



Almost commonplace
in silence or verbosity 
except, they prey upon life 
women who write poetry 
read their way in all directions
like a ginger root in spring
every single stolen minute 
in kitchens 
in local trains
in bathroom, sitting on commodes 
with curled toes

They are the hagfish of this world
existing on fringes
women who write poetry 
ingest everything they come across
ecstasy and agony

and everything in between
they eat language
they eat experiences
they eat other people's writings

and leave a trail of poems everywhere they go
