Bina Sarkar Ellias – 3 Poems & a Truck 

The Watch-dog

two dozen floors
of middleclass doors
and within its womb
a wolf’s tomb––
with knives in his eyes
and lust in his guise
of a watch-dog.

Night Crawls

       night crawls
in my coffee cup
dregs of day yawn
a poem writes itself.


A truck in my head
Rolls around all day
With a freight of words
That have little to say
But they leap up and down
Like circus clowns
O Oh! Have they come here
to stay?
