To Readers, Everywhere/ Indran Amirthanayagam


Do you understand the poems you receive

are cries of the heart/soul/mind. There are

no bulletins more important to me, from

Morne Calvaire where I live, to you, friends,

accomplices in these attempts to diss the fates.

To those who write back, thank you. To those

who do not, I remain the optimist, but for how

long? You are my prodigal sons and daughters.

I am old enough now to say this. Saint Peter

is counting. God is pacing. We are waiting

for a reply, Write, or the poems will dry

on the vine; the wine will stay in its

bottles, waiting for the cry from the sentinel,

the wild, coursing hoot of joy, the prodigal

child, the promised time has arrived.
