Two Poems by Kanchan Chatterjee

stopping by
around mid-day
the bus stops
at the motel…
I sit inside
and look out
through the broken
window pane...
a lonely cow munches cardboard;
a backdrop of baked landscapes,
mountain ranges
or maybe dunes;
from a distance they all look the same
I eat in silence and wait…

a moment captured
looking out the moving window
I see an old fellow
sitting under the
shadow of a
Coca-Cola hoarding
by the dried up river
catching his breath...
