DARK HOUSE (A Poem)

Dark House

a poem 

by Aman Mittal

A  big dark house

I  made it myself

Brick by brick

From a corner to top

Hollow from inside

Narrow by side

Without an attic

Roof is flat

But a big cellar

At the bottom

Locked and shut

Connected with tunnels

Marrow and shallow

Left incomplete

To banish the escape

Not a soul to dwell

But to consist

Only my dead thoughts.

    Hi Aman, I wasn’t sure if the “marrow” here was a typo for “narrow” or not, but I accepted it at face value. I love it as is. WOW. Some of the language here is — well, you are a poet, so you know…You use brevity to express so much more than what is actually said by the words themselves and even then, sometime the way you say things in your poems is just stark and unusual. I love that. Very very nice.
