Towards a New Cosmopoetics of World Citizenship

Updated: Sep 7, 2023

An Evening of Breaking Boxes


Towards a New Cosmopoetics of World Citizenship


by Ananta Kumar Giri © 2015


It has been an evening of breaking boxes


not of breaking news


Your lectures on cosmopolitanism


and world citizenship


have broken our many boundaries


between states and faiths


rivers and the sky


I now rush to touch the river


beyond the trap of my social security number


Each breaking


is a moment of awakening


You say citizenship is work and meditation


With beauty, dignity and dialogues


I now pause


have patience and realize


I can start my work and meditations


right at this moment


My work and meditation


is part of an ecology of hope


Hope not only falls from the sky


It is born out of our strivings


Bio-aesthetic strivings and spiritual strivings


Hope work


With and beyond the landscape


of despair


a new self-making


Foundations for a new community


A new science and spirituality


A new cosmopolitanism as part of a new cosmology of being


A new cosmopoesis of citizenship


A new cosmopoesis of our world


Kissing grandeur in each other


In our sour sweet lips
