Up and Coming
(for Mainak Dhar)
He’s catching up to Stephen King.
Horror will never be the same.
While Stevie’s burning everything
In conflagrations sometimes lame,
Mainak is taking careful aim
At how we lose our liberty
By swearing hard in safety’s name.
A little girl will make us free.
All readers here may not agree—
But I think Mainak Dhar has space
For branching out. Just possibly,
A vampire ought to show his face.
Bloodsuckers, Mainak: take a crack!
(Stephanie Meyer, watch your back….)
