Last bit: Rajorshi Narayan Patranabis (Tagore Special)

Rajorshi Patranabis
A gleam took over her morosely dabbed eyeline.
"Can you paint my feet red, with blood from your heart?"
I smiled. My grand old man has swung back to action.
 
"Death ropes our boat of life..."
 
Not again. The old man has possessed her again.
 
painted arbitration
crested sweets of misty anomalies
she is mine
 
As her story struggled to live, my poetry faded to cease.
Shesher Kobita- the last bit of my rhymed livelihood.
