Poetry | ‘Daybreak’ and ‘Clues’ by Sumedh Jog | LGBTQ+ (Vol I) – Issue 35


What if at daybreak

You saw two suns rising

Each facing the other,

Its mirror –

How would you tell

East from west

Or would you take this

As a sign

That you are

Your own compass


What gave me away?

My voice?

The way I hold my hands?

The way my hips move

When I walk?

Or the way my eyes followed you

Across the room?
