Poetry 2017 Longlist Akshaya Pawaskar

Apocalypse
Akshaya Pawaskar

Gravity had never been so strong
Now it was gathering force
It was silent too long
Understated
Night sky was crumbling, stars too
Moon, Gollum-eyed looked sad
And rather mutely
Terrified
Sun beckoned us, fob watch dangling
Hypnotizing to unravel our
Trust in all elements
Not to wrong us
Plaster crumbled too as they dashed
Helter-skelter, human race
On brink of extinction
Deserted room.
Parasols couldn’t shelter, nor the ark
Of Noah’s built for salvaging
The ruin we welcomed
