The lunatic equation and the lemon revolution

by Partha Sarkar

 

The lemon equation.

The lemon revolution.

The drooping jester

And the disappearance of the lunatic fringe

And the scorching heat

And the invitation in the middle of the day

And none can avoid the parallel skipping of the mystical politics

And the torrential river in the Pacific Ocean

And the harbor that wants to meet it

But cannot

As loses the oar with the wind

And there is no salvation.

 

Gives up the dream of pure democracy—

The purchasing power.

 

Partha Sarkar is a resident of Ichapur, a small town of the province West Bengal of India. He is a graduate who writes poems that are inspired by the late Sankar.

Sarkar and his friends (especially Deb kumar Khan) protest against social injustice and crimes against nature. His poems have been in different magazines, both in Bangla and in English.

Once, he believed in revolution, but now he is confused because of the obscurity of human beings. In spite of this, he keeps fire in his soul.

Bernice Holtzman’s paintings and collages have appeared in shows at various venues in Manhattan, including the Back Fence in Greenwich Village, the Producer’s Club, the Black Door Gallery on W. 26th St., and one other place she can’t remember, but it was in a basement, and she was well received.
