despairing writers & columnists.

The desire to say


even venom

even women on women

neon curry illumination of gob & arse

in the multicultural war

take care of reactionary mini-mobs.

What is Germaine Greer doing?

Attacking women’s writing and the imagination

siding with the patriarch

trying to score multicultural points

out out manouevered.

Why not descend into silence

from this point on high.

Brick Lane itself is silent for women

I do not not know this

& Salman Rushdie settling an old score

Why not & & & & & & &

If homogenous block of a culture

then men men men

Please don’t decapitate women.

Hide the Bengali version under the veil

& read the book.
