Fear Of Being Stateless

Fear of being stateless

Is everywhere—homes, offices,

Trains, buses, fields and firms.

 Faces dull, painted dark,

Woes, worries, anxieties

Known, unknown, imagined,

Dry body fluids.

    The fascinating paradoxes in the poem give it a charm, lending beauty to the otherwise dark picture of society.
