“Wet” A Poem by N Prabhakaran

Malabar Giant Squirrel on a dry branch at Aralam

The whole forest is in fire

What am I but a mere jungle fowl

All the trees are burning bright

I am just a giant squirrel

What is left is the little wet of poetry

Will it keep me for ever?


Translated from Malayalam by Ajay Sekher
