Rina Banerjee,
Her reason

with her partner's
kind for he
was man and
she was not
he... nor

country and

then who knows

Rina Banerjee,
Her pose was
well composed
and deities
would not
be opposed
rather they
worried that

spider arms

Quick to shift

hills knowing
she would
soon hear
mother's blunt
heels as they
locked
