THE GRIM GHOST

Chovar Blues Mobile Size
Bhawana Pokhrel

I can’t breathe

Uttered Floyd

To the lynching

Giant ghost

I can’t breathe

sagarmani mobile size

Let me loose

Bellowed Beloved

But with his knees

More tight than

Of a devil or death

Was preying upon

Another being

Just like him

He couldn’t curb

His cannibal

Rendered him

Unable to breathe

His prey stopped

Saying ‘I can’t breathe’

Floyd fell into

Leaving

An infinitely quietest-loudest cry

More strident than of Morrison, Mandela

Fanon, and Martin Luther King Jr.

Against the lynching, living grimmest ghost

Enough for all global unjust beast and boast!
