Appesa a un quarto di luna


Sarai tu a farmi entrare
durante la prima notte in cui,
satelliti, sapremo congiungerci
e ritrovare sangue
di un tempo mai più diviso.

Rientrano i piccoli, timidi,
mammiferi nelle loro tane,
rientra la dolcezza
con un pianto di gioia,
rientra il grido lupo
lasciato scorazzare in montagna
coi denti bene in vista,
rientra l’uomo dopo avere a lungo
camminato le acque,
rientra l’avversario relitto,
rientra il non certo
confuso e condiviso.

Appesa a una quarto di luna
come nelle poesie,
mai più pallida,
riporrai le armi del desiderio
per fare pace.

Aditi Mehta

It is an attempt to bond cosmic horror with supernatural activity.

We begin with 10 year old Arjun, who confronts a ghost and this ghost takes him to various crime in the city. Eventually, Arjun grabs lots of attention as he help police to solve the mysterious cases. But, when Arjun reveals about the ghost to everyone his life turns upside down as no one believes him and he has violates the ghost spoken words.

The book is lots of thing. But, the whole is less than the sum of its part. The pace slackens, the ghost and boy rap begins to drag and there are far too many threads hanging – a 10 year facing abuse and his challenge…
