Gogyohshi #2

Poetry, Oct '16
The poet uses Gogyohshi, a form of Japanese micropoetry, to express what he felt when he heard a man ridicule filmmaker Rituparno Ghosh soon after his demise

in life and death
androgyny is funny
blurring the line
though sunrise is not laughed at
nor is sundown laughable

    I was at my workplace and it was breaking news for me - "Rituparno Ghosh, half-ladies ( sic ) , director, mara gechhe. He, he, he ! [ "Rituparno Ghosh, half-lady, director, has died. Ha, ha, ha !" ]
