Kill-gay Day by Kushal Poddar

I am not a silent poet

Do you love
do you love?

Today is a kill-day.
Today they summon
your birth parents
and say, “You failed,
and we shall erase
your mistake.” 

Do you love, babe?
Or do you love?

Hide your feelings
somewhere in the water.
Tell the morning wood
about your absolute dreams.

Today they shall obliterate
what they don’t comprehend.
