“Prisoners” by Amlanjyoti Goswami

“Prisoners” by Amlanjyoti Goswami


I munch words,
Gulp morsels of silence.

I grasp, let go   arms of feeling,
The ones who escape,
-Empty words- floating
Free from the clutch of meaning

They amble down shores of song
The sun long down,
Like deep fried popcorn,
The sort that sticks in your tongue
Like a memory

Amlanjyoti Goswami’s poems have appeared in publications in India, UK and USA, including The Caravan, Mint, IQ: The Indian Quarterly, Indian Literature (Sahitya Akademi), The North East Review, The Poetry Shed, DailyO and Silver Birch Press. He grew up in Guwahati, Assam, and lives in Delhi, India.
