Three Poems By Sunayna Pal

Sunayna Pal

I have solved many
of various kinds

But I can’t piece together
the lies that fed men

to fight against the country 
they once belonged to


water in the darya shah
is less 
compared to
water flown 
from the eyes 
of partition

Looking from the window

Outside the gray brick house,
the street, 
the city,
and country,
are not the same. 


every little inch
crowded with memories

will never change.
