‘Inventory’ by Bilal Yousuf

Please attach the following to your record:
When the rubble was removed

at the blasted site:
colonel found his trophy.

journalist naked viral content.
politician rote rhetoric.

activist her terse tweet.
writer his brazen inkpot.

people a mighty funeral.
Idea its millionth martyr.

friend a late friend.
graveyard a stoic arrival.

Father the corpse son and son’s son.
mother maternal madness.

Bio: Bilal Yousuf is pursuing his MBBS from GMC Srinagar. He comes from strife torn South Kashmir.
