Another New Calligraphy - her childhood bedroom
Updated: Feb 29
In the Impossible Task Issue, Neha Maqsood, muses over a conversation which undoubtedly changed her life - the moment her parents told her they're selling her childhood home.
I - her childhood bedroom
a casino of speckled memories vehemently spurning cremation. the childhood bedroom where dreams and a moment of adulation
were dreamt off. the underground pool burnt
to ashes, nest twigs atop spotlights, shining
into the cemented darkness. this home is not
a home anymore. tis a cloud of dust, blowing
silently with the wind, stuck in origin, holding
my spot. a delicate girl, her skin.
