Mould


By M.B. Meme

Jumping up and down,
reaching the hands out up high
for the unattainable—
morning, day and night.

The artist
is baffled
as they come out
like different casts
spewing from
the same single mould.

“Look!
I have
a head,
two hands and
two legs!”
O me! I start
and scream!

(Translated from Manipuri by Thoithoi  O’Cottage)
