“Bones” by Rumjhum Biswas

27 Sep

The newest issue of Cha is out, and I think you’ll find it to be an excellent issue all around. I’m particularly taken with Rumjhum Biswas’s poem “Bones,” which begins this way:

The smallest bones I collected,
still warm and sticky
from your smoldering pyre.

You can read the whole poem over at Cha. When you’re done, check out Cha editor Tammy Ho Lai-Ming’s comments about the poem at the Cha blog.

      One of the finest poems that I have read in some time….it’s concise and troubling and touching all at once…beautiful job!

    Thank you very much for reading the new issue of Cha. Indeed, “Bones” is one of the strongest poems in this edition.
