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

Daybreak

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


Clues

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?


Sumedh was born in Mumbai and lives there. He works in the financial services sector and enjoys his work. He has started writing recently. He is a serious birdwatcher and likes to travel in pursuit of “lifers”. He has also started learning Hindustani vocal music in the past year.
