Glad to have three of my poems (“threaded back”, “oblivious” & “India journal”) featured in the latest issue (July 2017) of The Wagon Magazine. Many thanks to editors Krishna Prasad & Dibyajyoti Sarma.

Note: K, Kushal Poddar, the amazing poet from Kolkata, may have played a part in the piece “India journal” (that was my intended title). And “oblivious” has its roots in Kafka.
