Poetry: Letter From A Former Cook
pOLymORpHic hUMansCApE by Nandita Kumar Credit Engineer: Sajal Nagwansh

Dear Madam,

You saw my grief when my wife
was attacked and killed by a wild boar
Deep in the forest where she had gone
to collect wood for the home fire
to feed the children.
How else to light the sigdi*
Without wood or coal?
