In Prayer by Ananya S Guha

Erase those
wounding you
Take the slate
Wipe out memories
Don’t erase those
who slander
preserve them in
artefacts of history
dry memories to be
bound
in leather cases of
museums,
have you tried
the anecdotal ?
Narrate sorrows
prisms of happiness
and bring your grovelling
minds, to trance
in prayer.
