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.
