No Questions

by Jiyen Northan

Lying down in the darkness

Talked guardedly to each other in the stillness

Demands

of the poor people

Were all unapproachable

So he

Remained motionless in his place

Took a bit

Of servitude

into his mouth

Indifference to everything

Follows with

Unknown nourishment

There was no question

That they really needed it

(Found Poem from Kafka’s Metamorphosis)
