Kiran Bhat is a global citizen formed in a suburb of Atlanta, Georgia, to parents from Southern Karnataka, in India.  An avid world traveller, polyglot, and digital nomad, he has travelled to over 130 countries, lived in 18 different places, and speaks 12 languages.  His list of homes is vast, but his heart and spirit always remain in Mumbai, somehow.  He currently lives in Melbourne.

Kiran has just launched a new novel, Girar, which he will publish digitally from 2021 to 2030.  The story, told from the perspectives of “Mother” and “Father”, whose nationalities change throughout, will take place over 365 locations.  To join Kiran and follow as his epic story unfolds, click on through to:  https://kiranbhat.substack.com/p/coming-soon.

hawks tearing into ligaments
dust floating through the wind
American flags flaunting themselves here or there

what are their names?

I shout
but do not know
I scream
nothing is coming out

I exist somehow like language
like the spaces in between jokes
like the turns of the tongue producing sound

words flying everywhere
strokes of thought

nothing understandable comes out of my mouth
