Translated Poem : Vulture

~Krishna Bhakta Shrestha~
Translated by Yuyutsu Sharma

A vulture’s first
peck is at the eyes,

the eyes that see
the iridescence of the spectrum of life.

Haphazardly
it pounces and snaps,

a vulture’s first
dash is always at the eyes.

Dancing over
the chest of a festering corpse,

a vulture strikes
anarchic,

a vulture’s
peck is at the eyes.

With the very eyes
it focuses and assaults,

a vulture’s first
peck is at the eyes.
