Controllability by Shamik Banerjee

Poet Bio

It’s undesired to find a fleck
Of black upon a new white page;
One either tries to wipe the fleck
Or gets another taintless page.

A single crater on a pot
Can spoil the symmetry of it;
The potter can rework the pot,
Removing every flaw from it.

A suchlike thing cropped up today—
A nimbus stained the clear blue sky.
The morning was all bright today.
At high noon, blackness filled the sky.

But though a page and pot are small
Mutable things in man’s control,
Before Queen Nature, we are small
Marionettes in her control.
