A Suicide Note of a Dead Bullet by Palash Mahmud

Palash Mahmud | Apr 24th, 2022 | poetry | No Comments

Poem

is still living a nomadic life
like cashmere wools free fly
between valleys

is such a headstrong
to be re-embodied in this
unforgiving world

& to see the gunshot wounds:
broken bones, gushing
blood of who shots a bullet

because a bullet also dies before
it kills; because the kiss of death
tastes tart on all the tongues
