Poem on quarantine featured in Lockdown Journal!

I am happy for Lockdown Journal to feature my poem ‘Quarantine’ on their website. You can check it out here or download it here:

People Who Ate Delhi’s Smoke

We are the cursed boat people

They said we have snatched their jobs

And then, we were killed in a factory

before we could call them murderers.

~~

They outraged over jobs, onions, freedom

They said we were dying, with anger in their hearts,

fire in their voices …

We applauded, eyes moist,

“They stand up for us, our hungry bellies, our empty plates”

We had to die to know

Those were mere speeches.

Liars! 

(C) Pallavi Singh, December 2019.
