by Shivshankar Menon
(Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala, India)

She was a promising young doctor, he

Was a drug addict and convict

She came to tend his wound, and he

Stabbed her to death with scissors

Surely there must have been some

History to this ? Of spurned love

Or a relationship gone sour ? Not

In the least. Their paths crossed

Momentarily - and that is all."Strange

Are God's ways" ; "blind fate"; "karma"

- Everyone has an answer. But maybe

Some things have no history, no answer
