About the Author:
Tuhin Sanyal’s love-affair with poetry dates back to his school days. Himself a student of English literature, he takes pleasure in reading W. B. Yeats, Sylvia Plath, Ted Hughes and T. S. Eliot. Sheer passion led him to take up Yeats as a dissertation topic for his M. Phil course under the University of Calcutta. He has taught English at St. Xavier’s School, Bokaro, for quite some time, worked as a freelancer for The Times of India, and is presently a post-graduate English teacher appointed by the West Bengal School Service Commission. His first collection of poems, White, Blue and Other Poems was published by Writers Workshop, India, in 2004.

Awake, in My Senses

There will be a day
For you to stay
Awake, in my senses,
While I sketch sleep.

There will be a night
For you to fight
Out the wrong tenses
That grammarians keep.

There will be a hutment
With morsels and parchment
Of ancient minces
When logics peep.

Then there may be tempests
And attending he-guests
With myopic lenses,
To favours reap!
Can I then share
Your winding stair,
With you in my senses…
While I sketch sleep?
