​Skeleton in My Mind

1.

It’s a speechless night

‘Anybody can kill anyone’…
My friends are writing reviews & doing chit-chat.
Holding tight the sales ratio of the book.
Standing over a stabbed soul in a town.

It’s a speechless night …

2.

After death –
People recognize man as a small one.
Man comes back in an overrated existence.

After death –
People recognize man as a vast one.
Man comes back in an unimportant figure. 

(Mou is Dhaka-based poet and independent filmmaker.)
