Jesus Round the Bend

Jesus Round the Bend, originally uploaded by firoze shakir photographerno1. jesus
once came to earth
to save humanity
as a human
with humans
he did blend
washing away their sins
he did make amends
an olive branch
to his enemies
he did extend
but they wanted
him dead
malicious malcontent
nailed crucified
bitter was his end
to his fathers house
in heaven finally
he did transcend
a message of peace
to all his well wishers
loving friends
he solemnly recommends

Domestic House Arrest

Domestic House Arrest, originally uploaded by firoze shakir photographerno1. he has been locked in
he was giving it to
another woman
a great mortal sin
his extra marital love life
now in a dustbin
shedding crocodile tears
while his heart burns
he plays the violin
a pain for a goddess
that has killed him
from within
sorrow oozing out
from his soulless skin
caught between his wife
and the other woman
whom he took for a spin
his balls hanging
on a clothesline
held by a safety pin
betrayed love
memories seminal stained
on a bed of a wayside inn
a poetic plea on this web page
to his next of kin

Fucked Forever

Fucked Forever, originally uploaded by firoze shakir photographerno1. he drank his life away
thinking good times
will last however
saved nothing for a rainy day
thought he was sharp
shrewd and clever
now homeless
on the streets of despair
life fucked forever

School Memories are Incomplete Without This

School Memories are Incomplete Without This, originally uploaded by firoze shakir photographerno1. This is the hand cart you see close to many a school near Bandra by lanes, this guy is going towards the Marathi Municipal School near Ram Mandir road.

He is a migrant from UP and a very peaceful man, he is part of every childs growing up, every childs school memories linked to the junk that he sold..

Fred Miller in Pune too must have eaten all this which nourished your brains , a wise one told me so.

Our Bhaiyya was a kindly soul outside Holy Name High School Colaba , in the evenings he set up his stall at Strand Road close to my house.

The most notorious kid in our school was a very simple tame looking guy, Anil, he would kill flies crush them and add them to powdered supari and jeera goli and give it to kids who did not know of this prank..

We took nothing from him ever.

Shooting Wild Orchids In The Rains

Shooting Wild Orchids In The Rains, originally uploaded by firoze shakir photographerno1. I am flower phobic
a street shooter
an urban prick
love to kick
living in glass houses
at my paper house
they throw bricks
I shoot hijras
they shoot chicks
I shoot street pain
they shoot flowers
just for kicks
street photography
pedestrian poetry
I intermix
I stay away
from conflicts

Poem inspired by Randall

Now you must be wondering who is this lady of Bandra Reclamation living under the umbrella.
Nobody knows her name , though once she has lived and seen good times , she never moves out from under this umbrella.

A few days back Mumbai had the heaviest rains of this season and she faced it all, I hate shooting her picture , as I have no balls to see her in the eye, she lives more contended than I do..Marziya likes her I give Marziya a tenner and braving the surrounding muck, Marziya goes and hands it over to her.

I want Marziya to understand pain compassion before she learns photogra…

Lucknowi Zaika, originally uploaded by firoze shakir photographerno1. This morning wife served Besan ki roti , that had coriander, ajwain, onion , red chillies stuffed in it, the chutney was made out of lasson , garlic , green chilly..

Valdimir Mouveau my French friend and Marc de Clercq my Belgian friend ,too have liked my wife's dishes.

The other dishes wife makes our Lucknowi Dum Biryani, Thehri,Khichdi, Khichda, gilawat ke kebab , and various types of dals and jeera rice too.

We dont eat bread , rice and chapatis are the staple diet.

Wife also makes fish- Rawas , Promfret , Surmai Bombay ducks.. she does not like Ban…
