Abraham came to my door

Abraham came to my door.
I listened.
And I listened.
For his knocks.
Three knocks.

Abraham came for me.
With a lantern.
And stick.
A cellphone?
And a shuffle

It was time.
So I was ready.
With two grains.
An empty jar.
And a ziplock bag.

And men walk along
Into the woods.
Walk past Abraham.
His cape.
And his lantern.

Abraham eshichhilo amar dore.
ek noy teen bar toka mere
Aekhoni shomoy bodh hoy
Godhuli sheshe

Abraham eshechhilo amar dore.
