About Anisuzzaman Sohel

How many of our pure thoughts are alive these days, if any at all?
All seem sold out for wrong pennies, to wrong senses.
Disguised politics to economic aggression, facts to media twists,
price-tags to multi-nations, hybrid to formalin,
green chili to baby-foods, America to China, Coke to McDonald's,
industrial wastes to the monsters inside the human residentials,
gas to petrol, nuclear energy to global violence, global warming"”
all the warning riddles ring everywhere"” endless and restless!

Yet, do the tedious compulsions or convulsions of competition
give us any space to look at the hell climax of this grave tragedy?
At such an age of distortions and extortions all around,
I just couldn't frame sweet canvases of flowers, birds, golden twilights,
or even abstract compositions of sheer colors.
Pouring the shrunk intuition over my embarrassed observations,
I could only resort to some manipulated metaphors
for merely a bold new visualization of the same old bald puzzles.
