Magic – Aneek Chatterjee

Diamond still life

 

Wait, I’ll give you
a diamond
I’ll show you
Magic

about how a diamond
turns into a stone
and thrown at us
And how we waive our
tails in wonder

How a stone kills
our day, our nights
our passion, pride and dream
How a stone spoofs
all and turns into
a magic

I’ll show
