Antigone

Antigone is mere particle of dust,
Burying a piece of dust thou art.
In our religion we do not bury it.
We only burn it with holy water
Walking thrice with a pot of holes.

Anyone is Antigone dust particle.
Anyone walks thrice with the pot .
She wants dust buried in honour.
Otherwise the blind prophet sees
The unhappy gods bringing down
Heaven’s curse on common dust.

There are holes in our life’s logic.
Water pours in them like firelight.
When dust lights the fire of dust
Honour turns a dust of the earth.
