From Love in a Time of Technology, by Sasenarine Persaud.
Picking our way between
tall bamboos in a morning
ringed by New England hills
after another year elapsed
on a wick burning a decade
since that night your eyes igniting
a South American spark
plucked on sitar strings
Saraswattie’s instrument wounding
the silence of all others
we loved and all who loved us.
In memory of Lata Mangeshkar (1929-2022)
