MIRROR MIRROR ON THE WALL by Malkeet Kaur You coruscate back every minute crack, nuances hidden beneath thick layers, change gender and genus without a flinch on the flat, effulgent face. Yet, when you gather sprinkles of dust in your ageing fissures and bound by nature you still display the facts in tiny shards and disfigured splinters, don't you think of diving deep to discover your truth trapped within that generous surface?
Malkeet Kaur hails from India. She has been working as a teacher in Mumbai for almost past ten years. She writes poems mostly as a therapy and to assert her strong female identity in a patriarchal world. Few of her poems are published in anthologies and online journals like Episteme, The Incredible Women of India, Resonating Strings, The Significant Anthology, and Acerbic Anthology to protest against female violence and many more.
