Two Poems by Taniya Chakraborty in Inam Hussain Begg Mullick's Translation



Splintered Glass 


Settling splintered glass

My hands were slit

I observed through the orifice

The body is a quasivoid

That for existences

Is scaring an earth-like ellipsoid

Of submersing it in darkness


Fate


Body that has desired body

When whole

Myriad giraffes tug at leaves

A reptile’s tail drops

The instant when sowing ends

Body is named soul


Translated from Bangla by Inam Hussain Begg Mullick
