City Series – Rishel Choudhury in Delhi, We the Isolationists (231st Corona Diary)
Our corona diary.
[Text and photo by Rishel Choudhury]
I close my eyes in self-isolation from corona… and I see
The highway to the desert
From our city
The long queue of silhouettes
Over them to the horizon
The setting sun
Man, woman or child
Old or young
They form a rythme
Like that of wilderness
In a deserted palace.
On the barren land of humanity
A dust storm came hurriedly from the desert
To burry our city
Deep at night
My body will become a mirror of glowing stars –
Permanent keepsake of temporary humanity.
