Post Mortem

By Rajani Kanth

love rent
like  a ravage
of war

admitted  no
outwarding
scar

heart
near strangled

spirit
entangled

riven,  I cross-ed
the bar

*

courting
gruff  ills

wooing grim
woes

under  a
nescient  star

Fate
or  the Will,  I
cannot much
say

nor how I
dissembled
thus far

*

give unto
love that
which is
love?

not enough! –
now there’s the
jar

one loves:
An-other consents
to be loved

ah, lovers
are Never
on par

*

that,  the bane
of  the passion
arcane

no truce –
even after
the war

lo,  after the
scarring

feathers
and tarring:

flares, invisible ,
from afar!

Rajani Kanth is the author of Coda, a chronicle of the life, and afterlife, of the last human, in both flashback and future shock, after the apocalypse of the millennium, where timeless, misanthropic aggression, and blindness predictably destroy all life on Earth. Coda is a compelling philosophical, and quasi-theosophical, post-modernist narrative, that (re)solves eventually the Riddle of the Universe, from the unique vantage point of the last sentient being left alive to ponder the question of existence. It is the quest of a latter-day Siddhartha, albeit in the context of an apocalyptic  world  sundered by global  catastrophe.
