Pragya Suman


Father taught me // to tuck two-finger
of right opened palm, // to solve 5+3=?
I fumbled among two fingers, // and failed

In a night of bone breaking winter

I untucked my fingers // after thirty years
Wiped the cold sweat, // came in stark loose–

Father yells still, but he is no more.
