Fracture

— Sandip Bhattacharya

What falters is not me,
But the world.
The earth shifts,
News arrives unbidden:
Another heart has been broken
No, the same heart,
Broken again by another
Injustice, another indifference.
What falters is not me,
But the universe.
It conspires to another
Ending of the story
That is me.
