Satish Verma's poetry is a cryptic, dialogic expression of the stirrings of a world within. This is not a poetry on place, tree or bill but one of a more desperate kind. It is a compulsive encountering and understanding the pain at its threshold.
The dramatic use of dialogue is reductive in terms of dialogue is reductive in terms of emotion thus rendering the poems ironically cogitative. The tautly controlled uerse, the paring down of language to skeletal minimal archives a symbiosis of spirit and sense.
