Helpless Smoke (Asifa)

Helpless Smoke 
A Poem by Faridoon Shahryar

On the cobbled road
She walked alone 
Blood dripped 
The breathing 
Heaved and echoed 
Flowers fell voluntarily 
Even the thought of comfort 
Isn't comforting any more
One last time she 
Looked up 
The vulgar roar of hyenas 
Blew the candle of life off
Helpless smoke wafts away...

  2. Powerful poem from, undoubtedly, one of the finest interviewers in India.
