Attainments – a poem by Sanjeev Sethi


At the end of our anthology, the ambient stir-- 
an expedition through wobbly terrain: like  
one held captive before a buffet, not permitted 
the courtesy of consumption. There is no-one
to implicate but my untutored heart and hungry 
body. Each togetherness has a tenure. There is 
grace in accepting it. In the shapelessness of
drifts, I see a silhouette: this is consciousness.

Sanjeev Sethi has authored five books of poetry. Hesitancies by CLASSIX, an imprint of Hawakal, in July 2021 is his latest. A month before it, he released Bleb from Hybriddreich in Scotland.  He is published in over thirty countries. He is the joint-winner of Full Fat Collection Competition-Deux, organized by The Hedgehog Poetry Press UK. He is in the top ten of the erbacce prize 2021 UK. He lives in Mumbai, India.
