The cloth is torn Come love, bring me a needle The needle of love For the torn cloth of friendship, my friend, my love. Let us make love one last time ... Such is the magic of Hoshang's poetry. In and out of cultures, countries, homes and beds, Hoshang has his innocence and spirit undimmed. And both shine through luminously in these poems. These poems contextualize Sufism for the twenty-first century using the wisdom and music of the East. This is indeed a glorious addition to the growing list of new world poetry. About the Author Hoshang Merchant has been writing poetry exclusively in English since 1965. He first published in 1989 when he had a desk at the University of Hyderabad with Writer's Workshop. He is an Indian poet deeply rooted in his family traditions while at the same time expressing the glory and pain of being a pioneering gay poet in India.
