Poetry | Exit Noire | Jagari Mukherjee


Exit Noire is a game that tosses surreal lovers hidden in Matryoshka dolls. Hence, there is love accomplished and unrequited and the desire to be loved and even to be raped. The poet is rebellious to the point of turning on the light that the lover switched off, daring to kill him and calling her poem a sonnet by a murderess and describes it as Schizoanalysis. As the poet stoically concludes, she is left to quietly count the sea shells when silenced by him. And her body is played upon sumptuously and repeatedly. This is unabashed poetry about the body which is played in as many pleasurable ways as possible; her mouth, an orchard where there was only ice; her body, a violin the lover plays to emulate Vivaldi’s Storm; searching for the color and taste of the Volga on her tongue, etc. In addition, the collection is replete with references to poets, novelists, or painters like Derek Walcott, YunnaMorits, ImtiazDharker, Pushkin, Amrita Pritam, Dostoevsky, Tolstoy, Painter Artemisia, Painter Kitagawa Utamaro, Painter Hieronymus Bosch, Deleuze, Guattari, Whitman, etc., that goes to show the sophistication of the highest order that Jagari Mukherjee has attained in her poetry. But, as she says, Knowledge is Poison for the Woman and her Mate. This is the dichotomy the collection is all about, an excellent collection of love in disguise.” N Ravi Shanker, Poet, Kerala, India
