We are full of follies, this is true. Our lives are no less full of trifles. We only perceive the most blazing, most glittering objects around us molding our senses that are still unaccustomed. We are thrilled, warmed and frightful of fire. We turn into poets, we burn in it, we find love, and we roast our fallen heart on it.
But Smoke from a matchstick?
It stays there, always there as an actual end of the beginning. The burned matchstick is deformed and, altering itself forms smoke.
Soumodip Mukherji was born in Calcutta and is a designer based in Darjeeling. Matchstick Smoke is his first book of poetry. While writing Matchstick Smoke he came across works by Charles Bukowski, Frank Oâ Hara, and other great poets of the 20th century which influenced his writing immensely.
