Rati Saxena


The Western wind and mothers sighs

Be first to rate



Be first to rate


A Yawny Afternoon at the Chartered Accountant's Office

Translated by: Translated from the Hindi by Philip Nikolayev

Be first to rate

As the fat cat grabs a catnap

On a leather-bound ledger’s back


Some numbers peek from under the binding

Leap out to freedom prancing and dancing


The cat’s eyes open with zero interest

And shut the gut has too much to digest


Staring at these from where I’m at

I imagine the numbers inside the cat

In the stomach the gains the losses


I ain’t coming back to this office
