Gift Shop is a curated collection of poems gathered over the course of a few years. Some of these have been published previously in online literary journals like G5A Imprint and Nether Quarterly.
The collection’s prevailing themes embrace grief, longing, and a relentless pursuit to find meaning in a world that is as perplexing as it is enchanting. The author believes that poetry should not be treated as a cryptic puzzle to be solved, but rather embraced like the stories of an old friend—filled with the warmth of nostalgia and a shared understanding (or a shared confusion) of the world. Through this collection, she aspires to offer readers a sense of intimacy and togetherness amidst the ruthlessness and absurdity that surrounds us.
About the author: Megha has been scribbling poetry on the backs of notebooks ever since she was an angsty teen. Since then, she has evolved to write screenplays, stage plays, short stories, stand-up sets and of course, more poetry. She is also a theatre actor, a coder, a flutist, a board-game geek, a wannabe comedian, and a questioner of reality. She currently lives in Bengaluru, India.
