Victor | A Poem by Ananya S. Guha

Do not target the victim
only the victor, the victor is unblemished, writes off pain,
hunger, gashes and wounds.
Learn. Target the victor, whose upholstery is embedded in vanishing
pain. Truth. Learn, target him not like de-humanizing belief
but trees unfurling branches
spreading into opulent skies. Swirling in heaviness.
