I am very pleased to share three of my poems published in the Chicago-based digital literary magazine, in their Winter issue on their 5th Anniversary. Since it is a quarterly issue and their standards for publication are pretty high, it feels very good getting accepted. If you’d like to check out the magazine, click here.
I’ve shared below a few verses/lines from each of the poems-
The Expat wife
She’s the accompaniment—
The spicy, sweet, tangy dip…
I wish I were a boat
I am a kite
Floating upwards- farther, and farther away
Toward the Kármán line.
I’m not an explorer
in search of a spark to ignite my soul
Nor am I an immigrant looking for another man’s soil
to crystallize my dreams; I am a shadow

About the poems: They are based on my feelings as an expatriate during my first month in Dhaka. Those who have been following my blog will very well know what the poems would be about. However, I request you to give it a read and let me know what you think about the poetry and if you have ever felt like this.
