Desire – Stephen Dobyns

By |2023-02-26T01:03:38-05:00June 20th, 2020|Poetry|

What is desire but the wish for some relief from the self, the prisoner let out into a small square of sunlight with a single red flower and a bird crossing the sky, to lean back against the bricks with the legs outstretched, to feel the sun warming the brow, before returning to one's mortal cage, steel doors slamming in the cell block, steel bolts sliding shut?

Lingavishappu by Vishnu Prasad

By |2013-11-11T01:06:56-05:00November 11th, 2013|Malayalam, Poetry|

In a recent interview with Madhyamam newspaper, the author talks about the 'hunter's viewpoint' when it comes to sexual assaults. Vishnu Prasad feels better understanding the hunter's social conditions is important enough and is seldom thought of. He feels male sexuality is suppressed in Kerala's social conditioning. He goes to the extent of claiming men are more sexually frustrated than women. He details the 'hunter's viewpoint' in detail in some of his poems, like the recently controversial "Linga vishappu" in which he says, the man's under wear that gets torn from excessive masturbation does not lie about his social condition, about the suppressed hunger of the penis.
