verse

Steel City

by S. Sushant

In the steel city
among steel people
sporting steel smiles

fight
unending verbal duels
with my alien self

invite
tenders for love
but get no bidders

send
unstamped invitation-cards
to the unborn days

wait
in the smouldering nights
under the barren sky
for that UFO
which never comes.
