Bipul Banerjee, Poetry 2021 Shortlist

The Toe Tag

Finally after the procedures
They put a toe tag on my ‘body’
Yes, referred as ‘body’ from now onwards!

How much or how long have I run, hardly matters
The race is over now
The materialistic mania
The fame
The people
My own people

All dissolved in disillusion
The cold ‘body’ now waits in a cold storage
For the priorities to have time
To come and claim
To formally do the ‘rituals’ and
Get rid of my mortal remains

From this ever- evolving earthly abode
Now the body realizes
Does not consider the cold storage
As its permanent residence….
