“Night Questions” by Sumita Chakraborty

Night Questions

                         When does the moon turn full?

When I tell it stories of love.

                         When does the moon begin to wane?

When I stop speaking of love.

                         What do you look like in the dark?

A horned, lit, and petrified tree on a shore.

                         To whom do you turn when in pain?
