This is from the young Chennai poet, Meena Kandasamy. I shall be posting it to Caferati Listings, but just in case the deadline isn't extended, I thought it best to send it on to friends directly.

Dear Friends 

Peacock Books, the poetry imprint of Frog Books, Mumbai, India, will be bringing out an anthology of poetry, 'Indian Women Writing in English', in July 2008.
I will be guest-editing the volume. Urban poetry is the overall theme that we have chosen for this collection of verse. Seventy per cent of the country's population lives in its five lakh villages, but as a nation we are characterised by our big-city dreams.
We are seduced by its slickness. We are shocked by its shadiness. And, as always, this powerful love-hate relationship with the exterior cityscape transforms into poetry.
Hysteria, insomnia, chaos, confusion… it is difficult not to become possessed. So, open up the belly of the beast. Share your best city poem. It doesn't matter if it were to appear before. It doesn't matter if you had not meant it for publication all along.
I am working with a deadline, a publisher with flaming feet and an illustrator; so I would love it if you could send your submission by the 30 May 2008 (to meena84 at gmail.com)
Please send a cc copy of your poem to Sunil K Poolani, Publisher and Managing Editor, Frog Books (poolani at gmail.com)

Do not let your fire go out, spark by irreplaceable spark, in the hopeless
of the approximate, the not-quite, the not-yet, the not-at-all.
Do not let the hero in your soul perish, in lonely
frustration for the life you deserved, but have never 
been able to reach.
Check your road and the nature of your battle.
The world you desired can be won. It exists, it is real, it is possible, it
