The Long Shadow of Modi: A Litany

We must unfetter ourselves;
go beyond many media managed meringues—
hot lemon discombobulating masses,
who knows
what’s being whipped in the name of politics?
Our world inches closer still toward its own dread,
where men violate riverbanks;
is this the inevitable order of things?
