Poems

Arrival

As soon as he arrived
Gnanadeepan killed a man. 
When did he get here?
Could be Germany? France?
Who knows? What he knows
is that he killed a man
as soon as he arrived. 
 
He felt like killing
so he killed him. 
And then, 
then nothing. 
 
The dead man appeared 
two figures 
Tamil and white.
 
He took them both to the police station
To seek asylum. 
 
“Sir! Time after time
I was uprooted and tortured
in danger and hardship
I know hot how or from where or when to begin…”
