Manipur Rape 1

Pain contracts to a Nation
when they stripshow
somebody’s daughter, wife and mother
walk them down the streets
and go home to meet their women
in their eyes
and shut their doors to sleep
for all is well.

When you walk a woman bare
you strip her of her soul
she dies
then you lead her body
through the streets.
Because, it is a living dead.
You walk a corpse.

They say,
men have women at home
and women have men at home
and together they make a home.

Mini Babu is a poet from Kerala
