Your New Love by Ananya S Guha

You are falling in love
not with man or woman
you are falling in love
with Hindu, Christian or Muslim
 ..
With blood in your hands
or with blood  in the face,
toe, feet of somebody else
 ..
You are falling in love
with somebody else,
not  Hindu or Muslim
the blood in hands,
feet, the body
or a man hanged by the tree
 ..
Falling in love has become
so changed now, we love
a growl, a bark, a shot in
the air
 ..
You are falling in love
now with the land
not the sea,
your bruised hands
your new love.
